Q & A

What are your hobbies?

Travel, Disney World, photography, volunteering in the community and school system, seeking out the deep dark crevices of my home to discover what food products my children have left there, jamming out with my kiddos.

Name one place you’d love to visit someday.


How did you get interested in fitness?

After college I was working out at the gym and saw Caity Davis there. She thought my pull-down form was fab and asked me if I had ever thought about becoming a trainer. Two months later, I was on a train to NYC to get my certification.

What advice do you give clients that you completely ignore?

I don’t completely ignore it, but hydration during the winter. I hate being cold so I drink hot decaf tea when I can.

How much ya bench?

Just enough to hit fatigue without failing.
