“The meaning of life is to find your gift. The purpose of life is to give it away.”—Pablo Picasso
MY STORY Who am I? The most encompassing answer is that I am energy personified. The title answer is that I am a Behavioral Change Specialist, Lifestyle Wellness Coach, Personal Trainer and Group Exercise Instructor.
I entered the field of health and wellness promotion in December 1999. I read a sign on the locker room door at the YMCA that asked, “Do you like people? Do like money? Do you like to dance?” Answering yes to all three questions has turned into an exciting career that has evolved over the last 18+ years.
I totally love what I do. I love helping people set and achieve wellness goals. I love creating safe and supportive spaces that allow children, women and men to thrive while improving their health. I love my life.
One of my favorite quotes is by Pablo Picasso: “The meaning of life is to find your gift. The purpose of life is to give it away.” And, that is EXACTLY what I get to do. #IfNotMeWhoIfNotNowWhen
