She has been working with clients of all ages and fitness levels for the past 18 years. She lives with her family in beautiful Santa Barbara, California.

Her background in Kinesiology and Rehabilitation has provided her with the most rewarding career she could imagine, and she loves helping others reach their health and fitness goals. As a women’s personal trainer, she works with clients to help them rehabilitate and build strength after pregnancy so they can get back to doing what they love. By educating and working with her clients, they are able to engage in a healthy lifestyle and decrease their risk of disease, injury, and disability later in life.
