My fitness career started in the heyday of Nautilus, leg warmers, and Jane Fonda! (You can probably guess the decade). After a period of working as a Medical Assistant, I got married to a wonderdful man, and we are married for 30 years. After having 3 children I started to attend local fitness classes, got hooked, realized I wanted to be on the teaching end, became certified and well, the rest is history! Being a fitness instructor at various health clubs  led me to continue my eduction with Personal Training.  I became Certified with the American College of Sports Medicine. I knew that I  had a real passion for-helping people reach their fitness goals, and sometimes changing their lives ,and mine in the process.



The most challenging and rewarding part of my work involves training people with various health issues. I have helped clients with heart disease, hypertension, high cholesterol, obesity, diabetes, osteoporosis, arthritis, post breast cancer, chronic pain, post-rehab, and many other conditions. When possible, I work in conjunction with a client's doctor or physical therapist in setting up safe and effective exercise programs to help improve their quality of life.

Not only am I still active in personal training and teaching fitness but I am also a Beachbody Coach. Beachbody coaching has given me the opportunity to help people out of my 5 mile radius! I have clients all over the country now and it has helped me to keep a part time job with a full time income.
