In 2014 I found myself overweight, overwhelmed, and unhappy with how I looked and felt. I made a New Years' resolution that year. The goal was to lose weight, mostly to fit back into my size 12 jeans. That goal and the journey I found myself on taught me things and took me farther than I ever imagined. I lost 70 lbs before I ever stepped into a gym from changing my eating habits. I learned how incredibly important nutrition is. I got back into those size twelves by November that year and started working with a trainer and lifting weights. By May of 2015, I had hardly lost any more weight but I was into a size 6. I learned how effective weightlifting can be in changing the shape of your body and that the scale really does not always matter. Through this process, I not only looked and felt better but I gained confidence in every area of my life. I also gained a passion for giving others the tools and guidance they need to create their own journey and become the best version of themselves. Everyone deserves to wake up everyday feeling in control and shining bright with confidence!

I love what I do
I started my own personal fitness journey in 2016 after graduating high school in my hometown Zanesville, Ohio. I grew up playing soccer, and showing horses, but after high school, I found myself overweight, and unhappy with myself mentally and physically, so I turned to the gym as my outlet. I became obsessed and loved learning about the human body and nutrition on my own time as I started college. By 2018 I lost 50 pounds within my first 2 years of college and my passion for fitness has taken off from there. In 2020, I graduated from Otterbein University with a degree in Health Communications. I am currently an NPC bikini competitor, and a certified ISSA personal trainer, my life revolves around fitness and healthy eating and I love it! If I'm not in the gym, then you can find me somewhere outside taking walks or hiking with my dog Roxy
Living a healthy lifestyle has changed my life in so many positive ways and I want to help you to do the same! No matter what your goal is I will work with you, motivate you, and help keep you on track, and we can have fun while doing it along the way!
