Q: How did you get into the fitness world and when did you know you wanted to become an instructor?
A: Back in 2016 after I graduated from law school my health was in bad shape on every level and I knew I had to take matters into my own hands to start healing myself. Fitness in many ways brought me back to life and I was so blessed to experience such a positive shift. Once I saw how much it helped me, I knew I wanted to dedicate my time helping others find peace through fitness.
