Relevant Experience: Competitive bodybuilding, State titles in bodybuilding competitions

Specialties: Weight loss, postural assessments and muscle retraining as a result of injury or poor posture. Strength, balance, core training, and overall fitness enhancement. I enjoy guiding clients toward a healthy, well balanced lifestyle and helping them reach their goals and believe in themselves. Reading testimonials from my clients and seeing the changes fitness and nutritional balance has brought to their lives is my greatest gratification.

Training philosophy: I believe in the power of positive thinking. I believe the mind and body are one of the most important and one of the most powerful things we have in our lives. I believe we can do anything we put our minds to.

Background: I was born and raised in Altoona, Wisconsin and have never left for long. I’ve raised two children there, essentially as a single parent. I'm now a grandmother of three. Being urged by my own trainer to become a bodybuilding competitor and a personal trainer, I decided to make a career change to do what I do best. I now teach what I love - my passion in life everyday. I became a personal trainer to inspire people to be active, to feel better through proper nutrition and exercise at any age, to push their limits and believe in them. From early years, I have always been an athlete - gymnastics, track, and field. One of my nicknames as a child was Mighty Mouse, so I guess bodybuilding was just in the cards. When I turned 40, I decided to start competitive bodybuilding and achieved Miss Wisconsin Bodybuilding titles in 2005 and 2007, first place regional bodybuilding champion in 2005, female athlete of the year in 2006, and first place Miss Wisconsin bodybuilding master 2008. I'm currently judging for the NPC (National Physique Committee). In my spare time, I love kayaking with my two dachshunds, Oscar and Otis, hunting, gardening, and weight training.
