  • Tribe Team Training Fit and Life Coach

Health, sports and fitness have been a staple throughout my life. As a competitive swimmer for 10 plus years, I have continued my health and fitness journey to this very day. I graduated from the University of South Carolina with a bachelor’s degree in exercise science with an emphasis in health and fitness. I am also a certified Pilates and core instructor, plus certified in several Les Mills programs including Body Pump, CXWORX, Body Flow and Body Attack. Teaching several classes weekly in addition to training with clients keeps me busy and fit.

In my free time I am a mother of two beautiful girls, and a wife of more than 10 years. We love to get outdoors when we can. I absolutely love to inline skate, road bike, and hike and swim as much as I can.

I look forward to getting to know you and encourage you to be healthy and feel great! I am excited you have made the commitment to instill these healthy changes into your life. Let your lifetime journey begin.

“Life is like riding a bicycle. To keep your balance, you must keep moving.” – Albert Einstein

I was born in Warrensburg, Missouri, but have moved around ever since. I found my calling in functional training through my connection to sports. Playing soccer in competitive leagues and college, in the Olympic Development Program, and coaching along the way, allowed me to understand and love learning how the body moves in an athletic manner. That love for kinesiology grew with my medical experience as a line medic in the U.S. Army, where I medically retired.

Working at Progressive Fitness and Wellness has developed my skills and knowledge while working in a fun-loving, hard working environment.

  • Certified Lesmills Instructor
  • Certified CPR & AED by American Red Cross Association

My career in the fitness industry started when I was on my own journey through weight loss. I started working out and it turned in to a passion. I met a wonderful group fitness instructor and personal trainer who inspired me to become one as well. From there I have morphed myself and my clients into stable, strong, flexible individuals. I enjoy working with all my clients and seeing the look of confidence from their own accomplishments. That, in itself, makes my job the best and keeps a smile on my face!

Originally from Greenville, Ohio, I moved to South Carolina in the summer of 2008. I got into personal training through my background in sports. I played baseball since I was 5 years old, and basketball and football since I was 8 years old. I played three years of Varsity baseball in high school, along with two years of Varsity basketball and football.

Once I moved to Columbia, I attended Midlands Technical College to obtain my certifications. I have been certified and training for about two years and loving it, especially at Progressive Fitness and Wellness.  I enjoy the learning-atmosphere Progressive creates for clients and trainers alike. The people here at Progressive are very knowledgeable and have helped me continue to grow and learn as a trainer.
