“Holistic health is my deepest passion, with specific love for nutrition and pre/post natal self care. I was a competitive dancer for 9 years and then fell in love with weight lifting when I was 18. That transformed into an obsession with a holistic health approach for my clients. My greatest desire is to help others achieve health and love in all aspects of life.”
