About

Having strength means being able to meet the challenges that life throws our way.  From daily tasks to active vacations, lifting heavy weights will allow us to experience life to the fullest.  Strength training makes us stronger, fitter and leaner.  My programs are designed to help women discover the power of strength training, especially those who are just beginning their fitness journey or who are unsure of how to begin.

I understand that strong bodies are refined in the gym but built in the kitchen. I offer nutritional counseling to get help you set goals, change behaviors and get you on track.
