About

Movement has brought so much physical, mental, and emotional joy into my life, and it's my mission to share this with girls and teens. Our younger years shape our body and mind, and my goal is to bring happiness to girls that they'll carry all the way into adulthood — this is the time to create healthy habits that support their well-being.

I have always been active, and that led me to play Division I lacrosse in college. My love of health and fitness continued to grow after school, and I became an avid triathlete and swimmer, having completed dozens of races, including a Half-Ironman. I have a background in education and 12 years of experience working in schools, I am an ACE Certified Personal Trainer, an ACE Certified Youth Fitness Specialist, CPR certified, head coach of a girls and high school lacrosse program, and a dedicated volunteer for multiple organizations that work with youth from various backgrounds. I moved to sunny San Diego in 2007.
