At 13 years old, I discovered the power of combining music and movement through group fitness. I knew then that my life’s passion would be to inspire and energize others to move! I grew up in the northwest (Idaho, to be exact), and started college in Nebraska - but soon transferred to FIT and moved to NYC to pursue a career in fashion. My career started in sales, and I soon after landed an amazing job working for Ralph Lauren. I loved my job in fashion, but I kept my passion for fitness alive by teaching classes after work. Eventually, the side gig took over and I fully leaped into the world of fitness! I landed a partnership/sponsorship deal with Under Armour, signed an agent, and teach a full schedule of classes in NYC. I am passionate about strengthening people from the inside out, and I am committed to pushing women beyond what they think is possible and ultimately attaining their goals, fitness and beyond!
