Our bodies are amazing and their desire is for balance and adapting to the life we live in them. 

Whether you are a hard core athlete, endurance junkie, like to dig in the dirt… I’ve done and seen it all!

My hope is that we can figure out together how to support your physical, emotional and mental being for optimal living; being able to do those activities you love to do with joy and ease.

Many of us have had major surgery, autoimmune diseases, a lifestyle of stress; things that have slowed us down.  We’ll look into your past to build you to a place where you feel capable again. 

My background comes from a life of sports, coaching, constant learning thru research and continuing education courses.  I am a Certified Personal Trainer, Spin Instructor, ViPR Instructor and have over 30 years experience working with podiatrists, autoimmune specialists and other professionals, where I have gleaned a lifetime of knowledge to bring to my training.
