I am passionate about health and wellness. When not in a fitness class, I enjoy running with my dog Chloe, cycling and hiking with friends, and trying out new recipes at home.


My goal is to help improve my clients quality of life through physical fitness achieved in a manner that is safe, effective, efficient and above all, enjoyable.
