Interview by Stephen Thompson, Ph.D.
Welcome to OpenBeast. Tell us about yourself.
Where do I begin (smiles)? For as long as I can remember, I have been involved with fitness and exercise. At fourteen, my parents got me my first gym membership, and I knew I had found my passion. I loved the way exercise made me feel and feel about myself, and I decided to make a career of it! I got my first personal training certification in 2006 and have been helping my clients achieve their goals ever since. I also spent some years as the Program Chair of the Fitness Trainer department at Missouri College, and have loved educating up and coming personal trainers. In my personal life, I have a wonderful family and love spending time with my boyfriend and friends!
So talk to us about your passion for health and fitness.
I have experienced such a positive change in my life since incorporating health and fitness. I wanted to find a way to help others find those positive changes as well. A career in personal training does that for me. I am so motivated by my clients’ successes. To me, there is nothing better in the world than helping people achieve something they never knew was possible. I have helped clients who have battled cancer gain strength and endurance. I have helped countless clients lose weight for an event like a wedding or vacation. I have helped athletes achieve their personal best on the field and in races. That’s what it’s all about for me: helping others find new levels of fitness and have fun while doing so.
Any upcoming projects, initatives or events you would like to mention?
For the month of October, I am offering a new client special where you can get 5 fifty minute personal training sessions for only $60 each! On a continuous basis, I will be offering complimentary consultations to those interested in learning about their current fitness level and how I can help them achieve their goals!

What are your leisure time activities?
