I was born and raised in Augusta, Maine and moved to Washington in 1992. I have always been active as I have 5 brothers I had to keep up with.

It also inspired me to compete in and win a bodybuilding competition in 2012.
I enjoy working with all ages, any fitness level—from the beginner to those that have been working out for years and want to learn something new or just be pushed a little bit harder. My focus when working with a client is core strength, balance, stability and flexibility. I do this by using one’s body weight and free weights.
Having battled cancer and won, I know the challenges one faces and how important it is to keep up with a fitness routine during such a battle. I am here to help you and motivate you through it.
My other passions are my faith, family (dogs), reading, snowboarding, swimming and traveling.
