My story begins when I was about 3 years old and my mom put me in dance class. I fell in love with dancing, and quickly became a passion of mine. A way of expression, and a strong curiosity of how the body moved and developed.
When I went off to Iona College , I majored in Public Relations and minored in dance. I then found fitness and health to soon become another passion of mine. In 2012, became a Certified Fitness Trainer and in 2014, a Certified Nutrition Consultant.
Since then, I have been working as a Personal Trainer for the past 7 years, as well as online coaching, nutrition consultanting, and teaching dance. Being able to keep all of my passions in my life is extremely important to me. With hard work, commitment, and dedication my clients will reach their goals.
I am a signed model and have also worked as a model for Victoria's Secret Sports Wear Campaign, as well as a Booty and Ab Workout Series for Latina.com. I competed in NPC Bodybuilding shows in 2014, winning the Overall in Novice and class in my first show. I competed regionally and nationally and placing in all shows. It is important to me to inspire and motivate people to never give up. Health and fitness is more than just going to the gym and counting macros. It is a lifestyle that can change a persons life for the better.
I am currently co-owner of OutLift Athletics LLC in East Setauket, Long Island. I personal train out of my gym, 7 days a week. I have worked with people of all genders, sizes, goals, abilities and injuries.
Challenge yourself, Uplift others and yourself and find the strength to push yourself to a place you never thought possible.
