About me

Hello and welcome to you all!

I am a health and fitness coach loving life in Bozeman, Montana with my little border collie, Bishnu (“bish-nu”, or “B” for short) My passions are happiness, fitness and the pursuit of health through food and getting sweaty. I’m a fitness enthusiast and a recreational athlete. I love the great outdoors and all Montana has to offer in the way of hiking, backpacking, mountain biking and trail running!

The nerdy stuff:  I am an ACSM Certified Personal Trainer, ACE Fitness Nutrition Specialist, and am continually learning, improving and striving to discover ways to help you live your best life! I love discovering and revealing the athlete in everyone!

My health and fitness journey has been an evolution; I was never really into traditional organized sports. I dabbled in track and field and soccer as a child, but I really loved to camp and be in the woods; to ride bikes and adventure.  I discovered my love of getting sweaty through playing in the outdoors,  through exploring the art of resistance training, and studying the incredible mechanics of our human bodies through the Pre-Physical Therapy program here at Montana State University, Bozeman.

My philosophy as a fitness coach is to “train for life”.  Exercise and nourishing your body are essential ways to improve your quality of life. I believe that exercise is an integral component to living a physically, mentally and emotionally balanced life. You’ve got to get your “crazies” out!

Working with me you will find  a compassionate, excellent, open-minded listener, health myth-buster, and together our sessions are filled with abundant positive energy and humor. Our time together is fun, interesting, and also safe; we work within your specific limitations and test the limits to help you achieve your goals. 

See you soon!
