I’ve always had a passion for fitness ever since I graduated high school. I was lost and did not know what I wanted to pursue. I’ve done landscaping, manufacturing, Retail, etc. I finally choose to follow what came natural which was fitness. I got my PT license and applied to a big box gym. After working there for a couple months, I knew it wasn’t for me. I wanted to help people understand and utilize fitness with no catch. Read more>>

My dreams have always been big and way out there for a small-town Alabama girl… I traveled internationally for the first time in 2015, and since that time, I’ve never looked back. I started dreaming bigger than ever, and the cubicle started to get smaller.
