Growing up, I was never very athletic. I was extremely overweight in high school (weighing about 190 lbs at 5’3), and I knew I wanted to change how I looked and how I felt about myself. I started running and lost about 60 lbs! However, I still wasn’t fully happy until I started resistance training. I started to look leaner, feel stronger, and my confidence soared! In 2017 I graduated from the University of Wisconsin-Madison with a B.S. in Biology and certificates in Pilates and German. I’m still pursuing some continuing education in strength training and coaching, and recently signed up to compete in my first powerlifting competition. As a trainer, I hope to inspire others to adapt to a healthier lifestyle and find strength and confidence in themselves!
I want my clients to feel comfortable incorporating strength and functional core training into their workouts. I particularly hope to help more females ditch the elliptical and find a home in the weight room!
