I have a similar story that a lot of people have. Life didn't start out the easiest for me and my siblings, we grew up poor and had an unstable environment. My Father battled schizophrenia which drove my Mother into alcoholism. My siblings were in gangs and I, being the youngest, began drinking, smoking, and partying at the age of 11. I picked up a basketball in middle school not knowing for 7 years it would be my saving grace. It was a HUGE self esteem boost, which I battled with. Not only was I poor, I was obese, very tall, and top it off with some acne that looked like it came from hell and it was safe to say; I struggled with my looks. My body image and perception of what beauty was constantly challenged being 5 ft 11 and a size 14 when most girls my age were under 5 ft 6 and a size 5 or less. Self love back then was not a a topic of discussion or even priority. I first began my personal power journey in 2003 as I took control of my eating habits and started exercising regularly. I went on to not only lose 45lbs but I also ended up starting to work as a Fitness Professional, too! After 16 years in the Fitness Industry, I have been honored to help hundreds of people change their life through physical exercise and proper nutrition. As my knowledge, education, and experience grew , I learned how important it was to have a good mindset to be successful at anything. I then began to study the subconscious mind and all of its wonders. It is amazing how most people walk around with a bag full of emotional bricks that stop them from reaching new heights and being their magnificent self. As a Master in NLP Coaching, Hypnosis and Time Line Therapy®️ since 2018 I can now help clients succeed, heal, and thrive at the subconscious level! MIND AND BODY INTEGRATED! My coaching approach is positive, realistic, educated, and compassionate. Oh yeah and .... LETS HAVE FUN!
My husband Josh and I have been best friends since 11 years old ( yep, I got that story for you too). Together, we currently own a Personal Training Center in Henderson, NV. Both being over weight kids, we have a real passion for helping our clients achieve success! Our methodology helps clients "normalize" fitness to become apart of their life in a healthy manner. In 2012, we opened our first Personal Training Center in Chicago and sold our company in 2017. Today, we continue to collaborate to help change lives through fitness, yoga, meal plans, and life coaching. Often we tell other couples how the love languages of NLP have been incredible for our marriage as well. Effective communication is key to a healthy, loving, relationship and partnership.
By nature, I have had a positive attitude my whole life. I can often be a bit enthusiastic too! I see the amazing possibilities and capabilities in every client.
I always loved the beautiful possibilities in life and to listen to other people's journeys. My passion for serving others is my motivation to learn and grow everyday. Life is not about the hardships we encounter but what we do when the hardships happen to us. What character are we forming? How do we get back up? How do we come back stronger? How long are we going to carry it?
Once you start "driving your own bus" life will happen for you, not to you. Even in the hardest of circumstances, we can find the positive learnings and take the lesson.
