Growing up in the suburbs of Chicago, in Bensenville, I ran cross country in High School and enjoyed practicing and studying pilates, dance and yoga.  With a love of the movements arts, I became a certified yoga instructor in 2004.  My interests expanded to include weight lifting.  After years in the gym and teaching, I decided to pursue personal training (2019).  I firmly believe that whichever type of movement you choose, it should not only make you stronger physically, but should bring happiness and reverberate throughout everything you take on in life.
