My passion for health and fitness started with my early dance training right here in Traverse City, Michigan. I was fortunate to dance and perform with Dance Arts Academy and Company Dance Traverse for several years before becoming an instructor, choreographer and Associate Director of CDT. My love of dance and movement inspired me to expand my knowledge and in 2009, I completed my STOTT Pilates training and certification in Mat work and Reformer.  From there, I continued to explore fitness and nutrition and completed my Certification as a personal trainer through the American College of Sports Medicine and my level 1 Certification from Precision Nutrition. I am excited to share my passion for health and fitness with anyone who is willing to learn. I love helping my clients learn to enjoy the process, embrace the sweat and hard work and be amazed by the results. I currently offer personal training out of Formative Fitness in downtown Traverse City, large group cardio dance classes out of the Bodies In Motion studio also in Traverse City, as well as online nutritional coaching.
