Certified Stroller Strides & Fit4Baby Fitness Instructor
As a Pacific Northwest native I crave adventure and the great outdoors. Practicing ballet for most of my life, playing basketball, swimming, SUPing and hiking- Seattle was the perfect backdrop for an adventurous life. After graduating from UW with a degree in Global Studies and Human Rights I traveled the world and taught English as a foreign language until I reconnected with who today is my wonderful husband Eugenio.
I have always been passionate about living a healthy and active lifestyle balanced with clean eating. Years of complications due to asthma, allergies and food sensitivities in my adolescence provided me with a craving to better understand my personal health and physical boundaries. In college I began running as a way to clear my head, strengthen my lungs and break myself free of my own thoughts. Running provided me a kind of physical and emotional freedom only another runner can understand. Rolling hills, gravel trails and pouring rain is my running forte. Seattle was my wonderland. Like all good things, unfortunately they sometimes need to be put on pause. Countless marathons later these feet were plagued by plantar fasciitis and put to rest. As a way to curb my need for a runners high while on a running sabbatical I began avidly practicing Hot Yoga. It began as a form of therapy but quickly became a love affair. A sweaty, passionate affair.
Fast forward to the birth of my son Gianfranco and a quick move to Las Vegas and you'll find me like any Vegas transplant worlds away from family and friends craving a village. I was searching for a way to bond with my son, provide myself with some sort of physical activity and possibly meet new friends. After trying one Stroller Barre class I was forever hooked. I found all of my previous passions rolled into one while simultaneously providing me with new friends and a village of love and support, a family, away from home.

Whether you want to lose weight, meet friends, clear your head or just get out of the house, there is a little bit of love for everyone. This is why I love FIT4MOM and I'm so excited to be on this journey with you.
