I am an Ace Certified Group Fitness Instructor and Personal Trainer with a nutrition specialist endorsement. I attained my International Pro Elite Natural Bodybuilding Card in 2018 and am a 5X Nationally Qualified NPC bodybuilding competitor. I have ran the Lost Lake (16 mile) and the Road to Hana Relay (52 miles) Marathons. I love coaching and training from youth sports to marathon training. Be it a 5K to a mountain bike marathon. From bodybuilding to weight-loss or injury recovery. I am in your corner! I started my own Journey at the age of 40 when I was an overweight mother of 4 in 2012. There is nothing I love more than seeing my clients excel and succeed at whatever their goals are. I welcome all fitness levels from couch potato to elite athletes to join me in my classes or one on one. I am knowledgeable in many modifications for most types of injury. I have been training Functional Fitness classes in the Anchorage area since 2012.

I have always lived an active lifestyle. However, I became very serious about expanding my knowledge of fitness and nutrition after receiving blood test results identifying me as pre-diabetic and at risk for coronary disease. Since that moment, I have stayed to true to myself and my fitness/nutrition goals. Quality of life and lifestyle choices go hand in hand. The combination of resistance and cardiovascular training paired with optimal nutrition, yields positive health benefits!

Being born and raised Alaskan I have a love for all things outdoors especially backcountry downhill skiing and fly fishing. As an athlete growing up, volleyball and track were my main sports. I still very much enjoy playing volleyball and I coach mid school club volleyball. As an athlete fitness has always been a focus but in the last few years it has become a passion.

Although I have a degree Mechanical Engineering my passion is for fitness and overall health for myself and my clients. For many years I struggled with my own body image. Through educating myself on fitness and nutrition I have been able to overcome those insecurities. Although it is a constant battle to maintain a healthy body imagine mindset it is something that can be achieved. As a coach I help men and women find confidence within themselves while reaching their fitness potential. I like to keep workouts for myself and my clients challenging but fun! My strategy for training is primarily based around free weights and full body movement.

I was never a gym person until I found Alaska Functional Fitness. I started my journey in my home gym, which I worked out in for years! While home gyms are a great way to start a journey and stay in shape, the gym has helped me to be able to reach new heights I didn’t know I was capable of. Starting at a gym can be intimidating but as a coach I want to help make that transition easier and more comfortable. My goal is to not only help clients get in shape but also help them keep fitness as a lifestyle for the long term.
