Meet the Team
Karate Instructor - 3rd Dan
Personal Trainer - CSCS, NSCA-CPT, OTC, PN-1, GGS-1
I've been a certified personal trainer and working in the fitness industry since 2013. Since graduating from UCF in 2014 with a degree in Sport & Exercise Science, I have also attained my CSCS, OTC, and PN-1 certifications.
I have always been athletic-ish, dancing as a young girl, playing basketball in middle school, and running hurdles in middle and high school. My passion is for Shotokan karate, which I have been training since 2002. My experience in sport has developed a deep appreciation for strength and movement, which motivates me to apply my knowledge to all my clients and athletes.
As a coach and trainer, my goal is to guide my clients and students into a more introspective mindset. Together, we'll tackle your deepest fitness and wellness needs through practical changes in your lifestyle. I believe there is an athlete in all of us that has the grit and drive to make us the best we can be.

Massage Therapist - MA97718, MM42052
I graduated from the medical massage therapy program at Withlacoochee Technical College in 2021 and am licensed by the state of Florida. I have studied Shotokan karate since 1987 and have trained with elite instructors across the world. The kinesthetic awareness I've gained through my martial arts training has been a great help in developing my massage skills.
I offer therapeutic and medical based massage with most massage sessions being blend of both. I include range of motion mobility movements and stretches as well. My specialty is deep tissue massage which, when done correctly, should not have any post session muscle soreness. Other modalities such as hydrotherapy (hot towels, hot stones and ice packs) and paraffin will be offered upon request.
My goal as a massage therapist is not just to make clients momentarily feel better, but to contribute to the improvement of their overall well-being.
Personal Trainer - ACE-CPT, Pre/Postnatal Specalist
I became interested in Pre/Postnatal Fitness after the birth of my 2 children. I have always been
very active, and into fitness. However, I realized the way I previously trained did not come as easily during pregnancy, and especially not afterwards. I didn’t have the knowledge then, that I now have, that could have helped me with the changes my body made during this time.
This is why I am here!
To help you prepare, and recover from, your incredible journey of motherhood.
To help teach you how to preform your activities of daily living (ADLs) correctly to help advance your recovery process.
To help you strengthen your pelvic floor muscles (to prevent that unwanted peeing that your mom may blame on you when she sneezes.) Psst…it’s not ALL your fault.
To support you during this beautiful journey we call Motherhood from Beginning to End! (Which is death because motherhood doesn’t stop after your 6-week postpartum check-up).
As your trainer I will ensure all the above is met through resources given to you and a fitness
program that can change the way you feel during pregnancy, labor/delivery, and New Motherhood.
