Her passion is to educate others on how to live a healthier life and have fun doing it. “My goal is to find an activity for each individual. When people tell me that they hate exercising, they just haven’t found the right one yet.”
She spends her spare time with her husband competing in races and triathlons, going hiking and paddle boarding, and attending Fitness/Performance Conferences. She loves gardening, cooking, and reading. “I believe that the more knowledge one has the better one is able to make the best decisions in life”.
