I am a certified Group Fitness Instructor and Personal Trainer through ACE (American Council on Exercise).

My desire is to always make fitness as enjoyable and rewarding as possible. A healthy lifestyle includes being mentally, spiritually and physically fit. I believe in being content with the journey, while also challenging ourselves to reach new goals. God has blessed us with one life and one body and we need to take care of ourselves in order to feel well and give the very best of ourselves to others.

I’ve always been interested in health and physical fitness, even though I was far from athletic in my childhood. After originally moving to Bartlett, Tennessee in 2009, I developed a passion for Zumba and dance fitness and decided to become an instructor. In addition to teaching Zumba for 7 years, I’ve also taught a variety of fitness classes including HIIT, Cycling, Insanity, Pilates, Barre and Senior Fitness classes.

Most recently, I was a trainer for Orangetheory Fitness in Lakeland, Tennessee before moving with my family to Frisco, Texas where I took on the roll of Head Trainer for Orangetheory Fitness/McKinney. In August 2017, my husband’s job brought us back to the Lakeland, Tennessee area and I am super excited to be a part of LiveFIT!

I have been married to Brad for 24 years and we have three children: Grant, 21; Sydney, 19 and Luke, 15.
