Why I Coach: I have always aspired to have a career rooted in building relationships. I initially pursued that interest when I worked as an elementary school teacher for twelve years. During that time, working out became an outlet for me, and that outlet quickly turned into a passion for health and wellness. Over the years, I was fortunate to work with some amazing coaches who challenged me to work hard, train smart, get out of my comfort zone, and, most importantly, to have fun while doing it. Those individuals inspired me in so many ways, and I slowly began to realize that I wanted to be able to give that back to others. Flash forward to today, and here I am at 35 embarking on a new career as a coach!
