My Philosophy: I love to work privately and in groups with men and women with a holistic approach to health and wellness. I believe the body, mind, and spirit are all interrelated and that wellness is an individual puzzle that is ever changing and different for each person. Fitness, martial arts, LifeBreath, meditation, nutrition, and laughter are all my favorite tools.

“I have worked at Ocean Reef Club for over 15 years, first as the fitness manager and then as a trainer and teacher. I have fallen in love with the Members, associates, Fitness Center and the Club.”
