"She believed she could so she did."
In 2008 I was working at a corporate job I absolutely hated. I enrolled in my first month of Outdoor Bootcamp and loved it so much, I decided to get certified as a Personal Trainer and open a Bootcamp location in Smyrna. It took off and I was able to leave my job within 1 year. I then opened The Body Bar (named by my loyal bootcampers when the studio was just a pipe dream) in 2010 and here we are!
I love the community of Smyrna! I live, work and play here and wouldn't want to live anywhere else in the Atlanta area.
Family and good friends are everything to me! I have 2 boys and a Georgia-born husband. My extended family is still on the North Shore of Massachusetts (where I grew up) but we make a point to spend Holidays and lots of vacations together.
I love long-distance running, but my body revolts against it. The beach breathes life into me and I miss it terribly. I have a horrible public-speaking phobia, yet I can get up and teach a fitness class with no butterflies at all!
I believe that having "Balance" is so important in exercise, nutrition, and all aspects of life. Eat the pizza, drink the wine, and take the HiiT classes...but make sure you throw some veggies in there and slow it down for some Yoga, too! ;)
I bring a unique synergy of tranquility and energy to my classes. I aim to teach and share a healthy, supportive and energizing lifestyle with individuals who seek improvement in their day-to-day rituals.
E-RYT-200, PRYT, & ACE Certified Personal Trainer, I joined The Body Bar first as an instructor and now as co-owner with Lisa. My journey from career Geologist to full-time mom to Yoga practitioner to a Yoga instructor, fitness professional, and entrepreneur is as winding as it sounds! I found Yoga to be the perfect counterbalance to my career in science/consulting and the demands of motherhood. Finding flexibility, power, grace, strength, and inner calm through Yoga, I was able to add these components into my everyday life.
My love for my family, husband Jonathan and boys Oliver and Eli, dedication to self-discovery, eastern arts and philosophies, and connection to the community and city of Smyrna provide the foundation for my drive, energy, passion, and care for my clients, peers, and friends.
