My passion is to lead others into wellness and being health conscious. Recently, I have earned my fitness specialist certification and look forward to using my fitness and nutrition knowledge with you. I am also a youth recreational leader. Working with our youth to instill healthy habits while having a good time through physical activities has become a new passion of mine along with sharing creative menu ideas which are appealing to the generation always on the go!
Having a Discectomy, a disc in my neck removed, proved not only challenging but required a new set of tools; including perseverance and patience as my body recovered. In addition to the unexpected, my determination NOT to let any barriers prevent me from achieving goals began at birth. Being Deaf all of my life has presented numerous barriers, but none that couldn’t be overcome! The key, my experience has shown, is to be mindful of oneself and believe you can overcome any barriers, literally!
Additional interest include weight training, yoga, dancing, roller skating, horseback riding, ATV Off-road adventures, and socializing with friends and family, especially in the Deaf and Sign Language Community. My motto is “Play for Life!” I believe we should enjoy what we can do if it contributes to us feeling alive and inspires us to be healthy. Externally and internally!
