I have been passionate about health and fitness for as long as I can remember. As a dancer it was always important to eat healthy and make exercise a part of my lifestyle. In college I knew I wanted to work in the health industry but wasn't sure which path to take so I received my B.S. in Community Health from the University of Illinois-Urbana Champaign. I worked in cubicle land for awhile and moved to Los Angeles before realizing I needed to be on my feet and help people. So I decided to get certified with the National Academy of Sport Medicine to become a personal trainer. I worked with another trainer at a private gym in West Hollywood, CA. Now I'm back in Illinois and I'm on a mission to get more people healthy and in shape. Not only am I a trainer, but I'm also working as a dance and Zumba instructor! I love the feeling I get after sharing my passion with my clients and I love to see them feeling happy and healthy. "Stay Positive and Love Your Life!"
