a little about me. a little about them.

I aspire to empower and encourage others, in their journey, for
a lifestyle change to better health & vitality.

Having experienced previous health crisis-conditions, past addictions & hopelessness-
I welcomed Jesus to my messes – in surrendering, I found
healing, redemption and wisdom that were the missing pieces in the journey. 
Experiencing God's peace & alignment and the results of transformation in my physical body led me further to train and study- as a Certified Personal Trainer with ACE, Train in leadership development- Leadership led by Katie Pearson- Now-( Be New Lifestyle)  Certify as a Master Holy Yoga Teacher & then say yes to opening a previous Fitness &
Yoga Studio-Haven Yoga.


Through Breath & Stillness,
Nutrition, to hard workouts, practicing silence & solitude- I have experienced God in it all!
He keeps teaching me! -So my approach is we are whole! God
made us whole- and to take a part out isn’t part of the whole
approach- Body, Mind, Soul!

2011- was  the year I became a Personal Trainer and shadowed  many collegues, I soon learned I didn't see myself training others  in the gyms &  opened up a small studio in my basement-  

In 2013 I founded a small accountability format called " A Better Me" that was God's idea- incorporating fitness, faith that created transformation for many women!

I love serving women in the ministry of retreats! I have
experienced places in my soul I didn’t know I needed rest and
recovery in, that I needed to tend to my soul care, as well as
physical care. Hosting a sacred space and partnering with
Jesus has allowed me to share soul care ministry, as well as
teaching the foundations of breath work and movement to
release, restore, recover, and renew!
Here is to spreading salt & light, Love & Shalom, Destiny
"Let the redeemed of the Lord tell their story- those HE
redeemed from the hand of the foe" Psalm 107:2

I have met many beautiful leaders that I have had the opportunity to link arms with in this local community- Some teachers, some other business owners all leading others to hope for renewal, health in a loving, grace-filled environment. You may see many referrals to different people and businesses - I trust you will find them remarkable women of God and Love for others!
