Tell us about where you were born and grew up? Your fitness career began in your garage at the age of twelve where your father gave you a foundation in weight lifting. Learning these functional movements taught you skills in life: hard work, confidence, discipline, camaraderie, sportsmanship, the power of the mind, and dealing with success and failure. Tell us more about this journey of hard work, tenacity, and endurance?
I was born and raised in Denver, Colorado. I was fortunate to grow up in an environment where we were always active. I don’t have any memories where my brother and I weren’t playing sports, riding bikes, snow or water skiing. It was at the age of 12 when my father gave me the foundation of weight lifting in our garage.
Learning these functional movements taught me skills in life: hard work, confidence, discipline, camaraderie, sportsmanship, the power of the mind, and dealing with success and failure. At an early age it teaches you to set your sights on a specific goal. Experiencing disappointment, leadership, delayed gratification and success are all key traits that are ingrained in you at a young age in sports. There is no question that these lessons and values carry over into all areas of your life as an adult.
You are a Fitness Expert, Celebrity Trainer and Crossfit Level 1 Trainer, Nutrition Coach, National Physique Competitor, Entrepreneur, and Mother. How do you manage such a remarkable multi-dimensional lifestyle?
I prioritize what’s most important, which is always my children and family. Then I find ways for the other aspects of life (fitness, nutrition, business) to amplify and improve what’s most important, my family. Being a mother of two incredible and adorable children, who inspire you to become a better human every day.
