A personal trainer kept me on track with my daily regimen. You know what? The weight started falling off!

Now, I am here to help you reach your health and fitness goals using the exercise and proper nutrition skills I’ve learned.

It was such an awesome workout that I decided to get licensed in Kangoo Dance in November 2016. January 2017 I received my license in Kangoo Power and started teaching classes in April. I can truly say that Kangoo Power is one of the best cardio workouts I’ve ever experience. September 2017 I received my Kangoo Boot Camp license. I also earned my AFAA/NASM group certification.

My fitness journey hasn’t been easy, but it’s worth it. I continue to work daily to maintain my weight loss and fitness goals, and I will support others on their journey.
