I believe in Balance: balance of Health, Fitness, Wellness, Life, whatever that encompasses. 

I love Learning: exploring all possibilities within Health, Fitness, Wellness, Life and enjoy sharing my knowledge and experiences with others.

I like Specifics,  I want Results:

It's gratifying to help solve a client's long standing problem or to teach a client something life altering that improves/changes their bodies or their perception about their bodies.

I am interested and invested in my clients: I see my role as to Educate, Guide and Empower them and have a little fun along the way as we focus on the results they want and need.
