I've been involved in sports and fitness for as long as I can remember. Growing up in Rhode Island, I played soccer, softball, volleyball, and swimming. After I graduated high school, I moved to Arizona for college where I started indoor cycling, running, and became a hiking guide. I moved to Sonoma and began studying for my master's degree in Marriage and Family Counseling at SF State. I now have two children (9 & 11), who are growing up just as active as I did- both are in sports and as a family, we enjoy hiking, biking, and running together. I look forward to helping you meet your fitness goals, whatever they are!
