Upon graduating college I married my husband, the love of my life…the man that makes me smile & laugh like no other. Fast-forward a few years, we have 2 beautiful daughters, and we are traveling across the country (and back) in pursuit of happiness. In March 2015 we decided that Mason City, Iowa would be our “happy place” so we decided to settled here for the long haul. I have managed other “gyms” but always wanted my own fitness business, to share my passion, and I believe that now is that time.
I graduated with a Bachelor’s of Science Degree: Exercise Science from Slippery Rock University, with a minor in Gerontology. I have 15+ years’ experience working with clients of all ages and physical levels. I’ve worked in small community fitness centers to large commercialized fitness centers (and a few in between); each has given me the opportunity to experience educational and personal growth.
My passion and love of yoga developed a few years ago. Always on the go, always pushing my body physically…my body & mind craved balance. Finding my style of yoga that physically challenged me along with a mental challenge is what got me hooked. I practice yoga daily, whether it be in movement, breathing, or thought. Yoga is what keeps me moving forward in a positive direction.
I feel that I am very personable, laid-back and easy to get along with. I am also a strong, motivated, passionate, organized and independent person. I am not perfect, no one is…I know what my weaknesses are and I work on them every day.
I was born and raised right here in Mason City, Iowa. I am now living in small town Hanlontown, Iowa. I am currently a student in the Radiologic Technology Program at Mercy Medical Center – North Iowa. I have been training kickboxing, HIIT courses, and weightlifting for the past 5 years. I have a passion for fitness as well as the relationships that form from sharing that passion with others. I love to be challenged and to grow with each individual’s triumphs in the fitness world. My clients’ goals are my goals and their celebrations are my celebrations. I am SO excited to begin this journey with Transform and all of the clientele involved. It is time to transform your mind, your body, your spirit, and your lifestyle into a stronger, happier, healthier version of YOU. I cannot wait to work with you – let’s TRANSFORM together.
I grew up in Nora Springs and now live on the outside of Mason City with my Husband and kids. My two children are my world, so much that I run an in-home daycare during the week. In early elementary I started tumbling and fell in love with the sport. I began coaching gymnastics while I was in high school and college. I attended hot yoga classes while in college and found the practice to be similar to the tumbling conditioning I grew up doing, and always hoped for a studio in Mason City. Finally, Transform is here and I am ready to become the best self I can be while leading others to do the same. I love pushing myself in each class, leaving feeling accomplished and starting my day off positive!
