I graduated from Pacific Lutheran University with a degree in Exercise Science. I am a (NSCA) certified personal trainer,200 hr Registered Yoga Teacher, a certified children's yoga instructor, wife and a mother of two boys. This career allows me to continue to do what I love, while still having quality time to spend with my family. My style is very high-energy and I love to help people develop their own passion for exercise and wellness. As a personal trainer, I enjoy the one-on-one interaction with my clients, helping them to challenge themselves to a higher level of fitness. Working with small groups, I love to motivate my classes and push them to new limits. As a yoga instructor, I love to help people create balance in their busy lives. In my kids yoga classes, I introduce children to yoga, meditation and mindfulness in a playful, child-centered way using music, games and activities along with asana. With over 20 years invested in this career, I still consider myself a student. The industry is constantly changing and evolving and I work hard to continue to learn and educate myself so that I can bring valuable, current information to my clients.
