TRUFITNESS STRENGTH & CONDITIONING WARRIOR
About me– Raised in Cary, Il. I’m the oldest of 3 and an athlete who played hockey & softball. In 2015, my junior year of high school our hockey team won nationals. This win along with all the hours spent training and traveling solidified my desire to become a fitness and nutrition coach. My passion and education for fitness, sports & health offers the opportunity to help my community become the best version of themselves.
As head coach & director of our Youth program I’ve been given the amazing opportunity to develop & coach programs for all fitness levels, athletes & non within the ages 6-18. In the Fall my love for baseball opens up another door to work exclusively with the Rawling Tigers.
I love educating our tribe members on the importance of daily exercise, nutrition and how to improve their strength not just physically but mentally too.

TRUFITNESS METABOLIC QUEEN!!
About me– I grew up in California playing softball through high school and set the record for the most consecutive base hits in a row. I earned a full scholarship to Winthrop University as a D1 athlete playing 2nd base.
Fitness has always been a passion of mine so it was only natural to get into the profession and become a fitness instructor. As I became certified in several areas of training I realized how much I love “FOOD”, meal prep, cooking so I dove into the nutrition aspect and became a certified Nutritional coach. I love helping our tribe understand the value of a healthy meal plan and creating amazing dishes!
As an instructor at Trufitness I program our Metabolic, spin & TRX classes. All classes are designed specifically around functionality, balance, endurance and we have a lot of fun, come join us!
I believe in practicing what you preach. I work out 6 days a week and live a clean lifestyle. I love what I do and my goals are to continue to learn as much as I can and to share it with my tribe.

TRUFITNESS KICKBOX MASTER
I’m a holistic health junkie, a Foodie and love to empower individuals to discover their strengths through the lens of fitness and nutrition. My jam, kickboxing! After spending a year training and falling in love with it, I decided to get certified. My program is intense, suitable for all fitness levels and ages with personalized attention to form & technique.
Becoming a nutrition coach evolved from my very own health journey. When I stopped wasting time at the doctors and became my own advocate I slowly realized my “diet” had everything to do with solving my acne problem to my gut/brain health.
It has recently been thrown into my lap what my purpose here on earth is, and I believe that I am here to lead YOU, teach YOU, and inspire the life that YOU are meant to live! Let’s ditch the diets, skip the hours of cardio, and let’s have some fun! Join the tribe
