“There is no perfect method, no perfect way. Everything works but it only works if you enjoy it. Whatever path you choose to journey into discovery, find what brings your joy, only then can fitness be sustainable and a lifetime enjoyment
When did you decide that you wanted to be a PT?
I needed something to honor myself, a productive way to self sooth and practice self love. I discovered this in fitness, one hour of practicing self maintenance is paramount to how we show up for ourselves and others. I wanted to gift this to others. Fitness can go beyond the physical metamorphosis and transcend into self love and care.
First thing you do when you wake up?
I try to visualize my day, categorically visualize what my will look and feel like. This affirms my intentions as I actively participate in projecting a great day despite how I wake up feeling or what the weather may look like. If I can mentally affirm that today will be a great day it truly transcends into how in engage in my day. There are times this may not work, I still allow myself grace and compassion to try my best to have a great day despite how I am feeling
What did you do before you became a trainer?
I worked in the fashion industry for years. Most notably Theory and Helmut Lang
If you had to pick a career outside of fitness, what would it be?
Maybe a chef, lol. Sounds funny because I cook but I don’t consider myself an amazing cook. But I love to eat, I love trying new recipes.

What is your training philosophy?
If you aren’t having a fun quit it. I believe everyone should fine what they love, that can be yoga, Pilates, strength training, running whatever it is, do it for you that’s the only way it can become sustainable
What’s your sweet spot for training, (ie. Strength, HITT, yoga, etc.)
I absolutely adore strength training, this is when I feel the most grounded and empowered. There is something so cathartic about lifting heavy weights that tells me no matter what life brings at me I can lift myself up.
Where do you draw inspiration for your workouts?
Currently myself. It has to make me feel good and happy, I no longer feel the need to subscribe to what others do. I do it because I’m doing it for me.
What’s your preferred way of training?
Strength training all the way! Love it
If you could do a workout collaboration with one person, who would it be, and why?
Massy Arais, she inspired me years ago. She’s the reason I started working out, I drew so much inspiration and hope from watching her!
What advice would you give someone just discovering fitness?
There is no perfect method, no perfect way. Everything works but it only works if you enjoy it. Whatever path you choose to journey into discovery, find what brings your joy, only then can fitness be sustainable and a lifetime enjoyment.

What would you like to be remembered for and why?
How I made people feel, I hope it will better. I hope to leave people better than I meet them. I am such an empath, I feel so deeply.

It’s such a great feeling to feel welcomed, seen, and accepted. I hope my can leave this mark on those I meet.
What has 2020 taught you?
2020 showed my a woman I didn’t know. It showed me my tenacity, strength, and adaptability. It taught me to get out my own way, and to just go for it, it also showed me I need to slow it down, enjoy every single success and milestone.

Invest back in personal relationships that invest in me, get back to my roots of daily self maintenance and care, I think I got the physical component down but I need to spend more time filling up my emotional and spiritual jar
