I am proud to hold several professional certifications. It is my job to continue to learn and hone my craft. I am a Certified Functional Strength Coach, Certified Personal Trainer, Certified Medical Exercise/Post-Rehabilitation Specialist, Registered Yoga Teacher and also an IYCA Certified High School Strength and Conditioning Specialist. I specialize in working with clients for injury prevention and post rehab training to improve function, movement and performance. I can totally relate directly with my clients having experienced my own journey with hip and shoulder injuries. I had a total hip replacement in 2016! My expertise helps my clients achieve muscular balance, mobility and stability, improve flexibility and restore function, performance and strength by bridging the gap between healthcare and fitness. My clients come from a variety of backgrounds and range from athletes in middle, high school and college level, to active older adults and cycling competitors and everything in between.
I have always participated in sports and athletics from an early age and remain active in tennis, golf, swimming and skiing. As a Navy spouse with four children all extremely active in athletics, I also have been involved in their sports development and coaching in lacrosse, baseball, basketball and tennis. A former member of the Fort Hunt Youth Athletic Association Girls Lacrosse Board and Coach Coordinator, I am passionate about coaching girls on how to train well in the weight room for high school athletics and helping reduce performance injuries. My ultimate goal is to empower girls of all ages, to build their confidence and knowledge in the movement skills for sport performance and overall fitness and to apply those skills toward their health and wellness for the rest of their life!
I understand the importance of excelling as a participant in sport as well as in life. I am always striving to improve my skills as a coach and trainer, and gaining new understanding and education in fitness methods and ways to achieve my client’s goals and positive outcomes. I am dedicated to improving my clients over all fitness and quality of life.
I believe there is an athlete in all of us and........ if you move better, you will move more!
