Growing up I was never an active child, I would sit at home all day and draw believe it or not. The only sports I played were team sports during my elementary school years, so Basketball, Volleyball and Track. Since getting a gym membership, I've been an active gym go-er for the past ten years, and the gym is exactly where I found my passion for health, wellness and competing. Being a Personal Trainer was never on my career list, prior to changing career paths I was actually going into Law Enforcement. During those years I learned numerous tactical take downs, and realized very quickly that being physically fit was much more then just being healthy or asthetically pleasing - it was about being strong and making sure you were able to protect yourself. I wanted to pursue a career in which I could still change people's lives but in a different way, where they could gain strength and self confidence all at once. So, I competed in my first Bikini Competition in 2018 where I learned that all great physiques take time to create and confidence to show, and now I' am also Personal Trainer and a Bikini Coach at Uplift Fitness. I specialize in weight loss/gain transformations, strength training and also prepare women to compete in the Bikini division for bodybuilding. I want all women to feel confident, amazing and strong, no matter what their age is - it is never too late to begin your fitness journey.
