Why do you love your chosen profession?

Eating well, managing stress and thriving in your body doesn't have to be a chore, and supporting people in their journey toward their goals brings me joy (pun intended). I enjoy helping people make living a healthy lifestyle convenient and fun. Fitness and healthy eating have impacted me personally as well as the hundreds of clients I have worked with over the years. Continuing to see people improve their self-confidence, overall happiness and wellbeing will never get old.

What is your superpower?

Encouragement. The power of encouragement is so vast, and sometimes you don't even know that you may be uplifting someone's entire world with a simple word of encouragement. I believe there is so much potential in people and no matter where they are or where they plan to go, they can always benefit from a kind word or deed. Whether it's related to their fitness, running their business, raising a family, or having hard conversations, I try to help people see the hope or light in their situation.
