She competes in Strongman, lifts weights regularly, is an owner in a hair salon and established hair stylist for over 20 years, a mother, and decided to get into fitness training to empower others with that full plate you can still accomplish your goals.  She started a brand and community, Fem + Fierce, empowering women to be the best versions of themselves, and who THEY want to be, not what society labels women, to be.

Nutrition Coach & Personal Trainer

*Precision Nutrition Nutritionist

*Exercise Science, NCSF CPT, FMS

*WNBF Pro Bodybuilder

*Athlete and writer for Steel Nutrition

With over 10 years of experience and thousands of hours of applied knowledge I’ve helped hundreds of  clients successfully achieve their nutrition and weight loss goals. Whether  you are just looking to shed unwanted body fat or compete as an athlete my mission is to educate, inspire and provide elite nutrition and fitness coaching to anyone who is ready to change their life and take their health, fitness and performance to the next level.  

    As a child I was always involved with sports.  I had an insatiable obsession with challenging my abilities and was determined to get better at everything I did, whether it was racing bicycles against my friends through the neighborhood or having the most powerful roundhouse kick in martial arts class. That competitive spirit carried through from when I began martial arts at six years old to my middle school and high school years where I ran track and field, and played  football.

My journey into fitness and nutrition began when I was bit by the bodybuilding bug. I knew I wanted to be a bodybuilder at 14 years old after coming across a picture of Garrett Downing on the internet. The moment I saw it I thought to myself "I want to look just like that!"  I figured there had to be a way I would need to eat in order to achieve that type of physique so I began reading about nutrition. The more I read the more intrigued I became.  

     I continued to dig deeper into the details of what proper nutrition was and how to optimize it. I started off coaching a few of my family members and close friends.  Then around the time I started competing in bodybuilding, at age 23, I began to dig deeper into sports nutrition. What really drove my desire to help others optimize their nutrition was when my mother developed type 2 diabetes. The importance of proper eating habits took on a whole new meaning when her health was in jeopardy. By educating her on better food choices and lifestyle practices I was able to help her get a handle on her nutrition and vastly improve her diabetes and overall health and fitness.

We are all our own creators and have the power to produce any result we desire through hard work. No matter your age, to optimize your health and achieve your goals, it's crucial to give your body what it needs. Above all, My motto -which I embody- is:  “Your Body Will Achieve When Your Mind Believes”
