I am originally from northern Michigan but have called the Kalamazoo area my home for 20+ years. After attaining a degree in Athletic Training from Olivet College and a personal training certification from the American Council on Exercise, my career path led me to West Hills, where I joined their team of dedicated fitness professionals in 1998.
I work with a wide range of clientele; from young athletes trying to excel in their chosen sports, to retirees who aspire to maintain an active lifestyle. I am dedicated to providing my clients with safe exercises, clear direction, and effective fitness strategies that fit easily into even the busiest of lifestyles. I am hyper-focused on inspiring and empowering unlikely exercisers: people who are busy, are intimidated by the “gym scene”, are afraid of getting hurt, or just plain don’t like exercise. Whether they are seeking help with weight loss, injury rehabilitation, mobility training, disease prevention, or general fitness, the workouts I create with and for my clients are tailored to each of their individual needs and goals. Regardless their motivation, I seek to educate my clients on the positive benefits of a healthy lifestyle and I truly believe that exercise can be fun, painless, and rewarding.
