I have been in this profession for over 20 years. I have worked in corporate fitness, personal training, lifestyle change, and physical therapy. I enjoy working with "older " adults who suffer from "boomeritis"
Within the last 1 1/2 years I was diagnosed with stage 2 and stage 3 breast cancers. I underwent a double mastectomy, 5 other surgeries, 7 months of chemotherapy, and 32 days of radiation. During this time I started and successfully completed and Accelerated PTA program, as well as continued to exercise and stay strong. Through this journey I have learned how strong we can truly be and how all of us can defy "statistics".
I now use this experience to inspire others that they too can do much more than they ever imagined.
