I’m a former type A mom who had to get everything done, there were no days off. I felt like I always had to be “on” or people wouldn’t respect me. Every workout had to be intense and at least an hour to “count”. I ate great most of the time but on occasion had too much wine on a Friday night. I pushed myself to the limit because that’s how I thought I would get max results in all areas of life.
All of that lead to me feeling burnt out, never in the present moment and with no real results to show for it. So what changed? I discovered the magic of listening to what my body was telling me to do and trusting it.
I learned how to workout more effectively & still get results in 30 minutes or less. I have built in time for stillness during my day to have some alone time which is especially needed now as a mom to a busy toddler.

I have been training pregnant and postpartum clients for the past 11 years and after the birth of my son my methods have changed and improved as I felt the need for different tools to be utilized during this precious time of a women’s life.
Past clients have included women who have never worked out until pregnancy (and yes you can safely do that safely), Olympic medalists who are training while pregnant and after pregnancy to return back to the Olympics in a safe manner, women wanting to heal 5 finger diastasis recti gaps, and women who just want to have more energy to be with their kids. I help you create the plan that will suit you the best during & after your pregnancy so you can be the best version of you.

My own weight loss experiences
- I’ve lost 40 pounds in my late 20’s after I realized I could no longer workout to offset a poor diet.
- I again had to lose 40 pounds after my son was born. The first 20 came off quickly and then I really had to altar my habits to lose the last 40 pounds. Another lesson I learned not everyone loses weight well breastfeeding. I now have a few tricks up my sleeve to help the postpartum mom return to workouts safely and still meet her fitness goals.
Are you lacking energy, accountability and always feel as if you’re in catch-up mode?
The last thing you want to think about is your wellness routine. There is so much information out there about what is the “best” workout, diet, or program to follow, how to make yourself happy, and how you need to incorporate self-care into your lifestyle. All of that excess information has left you confused & overwhelmed and have no idea where to start.
I get it all of the information has left even trained experts having to double check the latest craze to see if it’s legit. Unfortunately or fortunately there is no one “best” thing.
At the end of the day it’s the daily habits that we incorporate that help build our life the way that feels best for us. The first step of the journey is finding what will work best for you. Over the past 11 years of being a personal trainer, yoga teacher, Ayurvedic & transformational coach I’ve found each person is different but that is where my 3 prong approach helps us figure out what exactly will work best for YOU.
How can I help you find a balanced lifestyle?
By utilizing the 3 prong approach
What does the 3 prong approach entail?
- Tuning In– We need to understand what our body is telling us so we know what we should do to treat her & fuel her the way she wants.
- Workouts Built for You– We will c0-create a fitness plan that works in your lifestyle built for your current goals. This plan will evolve as we work together.
- Ayurveda – This is where you uncover new tools for helping you stay healthy over the course of your lifetime. I help you find your dosha, teach you the Ayurvedic approach to eating (how to intuitively eat), and teach you about how to clean up your household. Switching deodorants, toothpaste, & lotions if you want to uncover a more natural approach to the brands you use on a daily basis. I go as deep into a more natural approach to your lifestyle as you would like to learn.
