I absolutely love helping people. After spending several great years in radio, television, marketing & advertising. I finally decided to focus on taking better care of ME. Now, 200+ lighter I am now looking for more opportunities to help awesome people take back their health, renew their energy and love who they are...inside and out. When i'm not helping others, I am usually at the gym or challenging myself at a new walking trail here in beautiful Southern California. I love meeting new people and learning new things, so please feel free to say hello and share your fitness story with me.
