I am an avid fitness & nutrition professional who is passionate about helping others become their best versions of themselves. I’m a natural caregiver at heart; whether that be simply holding a door open for a stranger or caring for patients in my former career as a healthcare worker. Now as a full-time stay at home-homeschooling mom I spend most of my time teaching and guiding my children, which has led me to believe that children learn best from experience and from their own natural curiosity about the world around them. It’s cliche but truly being a mother, teaching my children day to day, doing life together is exactly what God intended for me to do and I can not wait to naturally share my passions of health and fitness with other families within our community while creating lifelong relationships.
