I started my Fitness Odyssey when I was 17 years old . I had the influence of my mom , and the insistence of a hard-core power lifting gym owner named Howard. I have been working out ever since. I completed my degree In Exercise Science in 1997, got married, moved to Soldotna and now have 2 beautiful children. I have been working and training at the Fitness Place since 2003. Some of my recent athletic accomplishments: • Second Place Light weight Women Alaska Bodybuilding Fitness and Figure 2007 • Winner of the Sourdough 1/2 Ironman 2008 • Winner of the Homer Mariner Triathlon 2008 • Qualified for and competed in the Age Group National Triathlon Championships 2008 • Women Bodybuilding Overall Winner for the Kenai Peninsula Alaska Bodybuilding Fitness and Figure 2009 • Age Group Winner for the Hammerman Xterra Triathlon 2009 I am a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist, (CSCS). I train triathletes, bodybuilders, children, seniors, runners, bikers, and anyone interested in bettering their lives by getting fit. I am a hard core fitness enthusiast, and I hope to continue to inspire Alaskans to achieve their fitness goals.” “If your Phat, you watch life. If your fit, LIVE life.” “My belief is that many people do not think they are capable of excellence. But if they just TRY they will surprise themselves. This leads to more confidence. Its this momentum makes them unstoppable.” “You must believe yourself to be great. And then you are.” “Everything you want comes down to a choice……and how bad do you want it????”

I’ve been involved with fitness for as long as I can remember. Sports ruled my life from 4 to 18 years of age. After moving to Portland, OR in 2008 I found the Fitness Technology program. It sparked my interest in fitness training and helping people live healthier happier lives. I love teaching Boot Camp, it’s become more of a passion then a job.  This fall marks 2 really awesome anniversaries for me, 2 years of Boot Camp and more importantly 2 years of marriage.  This year was my first year competing in the Mount Marathon race. It was always a dream of mine to race the mountain. It was awesome, and I’m looking forward to next year! I’m super stoked to be involved with the Phat to Fit program! It’s such a cool idea and I feel fortunate to be apart of it.
