I’m a coach, weight-inclusive personal trainer, and writer, who believes each moment presents an opportunity for powerful expansion. There are lessons all around us waiting to be revealed, if only we’d dig deeper (and spend less time consumed with how to be less). It’s my mission to help womxn drop the shame, get curious, learn who they really are and what they truly want, and feel empowered to get there (and have lots of fun along the way).
I teach womxn that we get to define ourselves, on our own terms. I believe you deserve to feel good in your body, no matter what it looks like. I know that your sense of self-worth has been stolen from you, in the name of dieting, shrinking, and someone else’s idea of what a, “good body,” is. I consider myself a partner on each womxn’s path, working together every step of the way to find what works for her body, her soul, and her life. All of us deserve to feel our innate strength constantly coursing through us, and it’s my goal to help you access that power.
I’ve worked in the fitness industry as a personal trainer and coach since 2010, after getting my degree in Health & Exercise Science (fun fact: I chose Wake Forest University for the sole reason that it was, at the time, one of only seven undergraduate institutions at which undergraduates could work with cadavers.). When I’m not coaching, you can find me reading, writing, cooking, or keeping Leonidas and Lara Croft (my crime-fighting duo of awkward dogs) at bay. You can read a little bit more about how I got here in this blog post.
I initially entered fitness in the hopes of looking like a swimsuit model one day, but for the last 5+ years, my goals have been edited to abandon an arbitrary beauty standard in order to deepen my friendship with my body, learning more about her every day as I give her space to be exactly who she is. The consistency required to get strong delivers that feeling, if not with each workout, certainly over time. When we show up, even when it’s hard or raining or happy hour, we show ourselves that we’re worth it, that we believe in ourselves, and that we actually are the person who lives into her purpose. We transform from the girl who only ran to pay nutritional penance into the woman who who engages in activity that connects her to herself, who honors her body and her energy, and who finally has seen what we’ve all known to be true: you can live your life, exactly as you want it, exactly as you are.
I can’t wait to help you uncover yours.
