I first became serious about exercise and fitness after the birth of my daughter, Tatum, in 1995. I played softball until 8th grade, but my mother was never comfortable with it because she said it wasn’t ladylike. In fact, she wouldn’t let me run track in 7th grade for that reason. So, she was thrilled when I made the drill team in high school and finally gave up sports. Little did she know, how important fitness would become in my life.
Although I had previously never run farther than one mile, I completed my first 5-mile race, 10k and half marathon within six months after giving birth to Tatum. The following year, I completed the New York Marathon. I began to see I had missed out on something growing up. The fire was lit.
After years of competing in races of various distances as a member of Team Luke’s in Dallas, I began lifting weights in 2004 and found my true passion. In 2007, I decided I wanted to look like a fitness competitor to attend my 20-year high school reunion. I began training with a trainer and started making changes to my workouts and diet that would ultimately lead to an overall change in my lifestyle and life.
In October 2009, I competed in my first figure competition and was hooked. In 2010, I decided to dedicate my life and career to helping others achieve healthier lifestyles through exercise. I obtained a personal training certification and began training at a personal training studio in Flower Mound, Texas.
In 2013, I took 5th place at the Arnold Amateur and 4th at North Americans in the masters divisions. In 2014, at my 13th competition, I earned IFBB Pro status in women’s physique at North Americans at the age of 45. In 2016, I became a Texas NPC Judge.
Over the years, I have maintained a diverse client base. I have trained male and female fitness competitors, elite endurance athletes, teen girls with sports and non-sports backgrounds, teen boy athletes, couples wanting to train together, disabled individuals and my specialty – weight loss transformation.
In 2014, Chip and I became empty nesters and moved to Austin because we enjoy the many healthy and fit lifestyle options the community offers. I chose to become a trainer at the iconic Hyde Park Gym.
I enjoy and am known for pushing clients to reach and exceed their limits through a combination of tough love, life coaching and relentlessness.
