My love of sports, nutrition, and fitness at a very early age. I have been involved with competitive sports my whole life and have always loved being active and outdoors. I was with my dad at a routine check up to the doctor’s appointment when I asked for my first calorie and nutrition book. (according to my family, it was around age 5)
I graduated in 2005 with a bachelor of science in Health and Human Performance with a minor in health and fitness promotions from the University of Tennessee at Martin. I was a four year Division 1 collegiate softball player and have been training for over 10 years. I hold certifications through NASM and the RKC Kettlebell program. Physical fitness is just one of my passions. My love of a healthy lifestyle combines nutrition, cooking, grocery shopping as well as yoga. I work with clients to design meal plans and nutrition coaching for weight loss, sports performance, weight gain, hormone imbalances and even detox programs. I am a certified metabolic typing advisor and Metagenics Lifestyle Educator which helps truly design a lifestyle program that works for all shapes and sizes. I believe that the healing starts from the inside out.
My nutrition philosophy is that there is no one size fits all. I am passionate about education, motivation and having a great experience.
I hold my 200 hour YTT Life Power yoga certification and I took my passion a step further last summer. I embarked on a four week yoga/surf/soul searching trip to Costa Rica where I got to study under Sofia Thoms and practiced Ariel Yoga.
I want each person I interact with to 1) have a great time 2) learn something new and 3) get a great workout. I love to cook and work with clients on healthy grocery shopping in conjunction with Kowalski’s Market. We offer an array of cooking classes from cooking for a family, healthy desserts, healthy food alternatives, you name it! I provide healthy pre-made foods that help keep clients on track and they actually taste good.
