My health and fitness journey began at a young age due to growing up heavy in a traditional south Georgia family where fried food and sweets are a part of every meal, not just a treat on special occasions. I struggled to fit in with my peers and felt lost and alone with no one to turn to for
advice. It was at my lowest point that I decided to make a change in my life and I could never have imagined the impact it would have on my life from that day forward.
That first step has led to a Masters Degree in Physical Therapy and allowed me to become a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist as well as a Certified Running Coach. In addition, I am Functional Movement Certified and am currently in the process of obtaining my Orthopedic Certified Specialist certification. I am owner and manager of Because We Run, LLC, an online and/or one on one personal training and running coaching business.
As a physical therapist, personal trainer and running coach, I have a daily reminder of how important it is to care for our bodies both inside and out. I aim to provide support, motivation, encouragement, and education to each and every person I come in contact with on a daily basis. My goal is to provide the most up to date information based on current research in the health and fitness field, custom training plans, and support in order to help you on your health and fitness journey, whether it be your first step or 100th. I am always listening.
