Hometown: 
I was born in Orange Park but have grown up in good old Gainesville since I was born! Go Gators!

Why Tribe and what's your favorite program?
I just love the comradery of the program and as a client of tribe as well, it keeps me accountable to my workouts. As far as my favorite program, that is such a hard question! I have been participating in Fit the longest because it's definitely more competitive in nature but life and core are they type of workouts I should do more of. Then there is our new program Punch which I am loving as well!

What are your goals or aspirations? 
My main goal in life is to continue to help people anyway I can and to continue to learn new things. 

What is your main motivational tool or quote? 
My main motivation is my family and mainly my parents. They have taught me at a young age to always give 100% in whatever I do. They continue to be great role models in my life and are constantly teaching me that hard work beats talent when talent doesn't work hard.   

Degrees or certifications:
I went to the University of Florida and received a Bachelor in Science in Sports Management and a minor in Business. I started working at Gainesville Health & Fitness in May of 2008.

Why Tribe and what's your favorite program?
I believe that having some form of social support in our exercise journey is super important, and Tribe provides people with a team that helps them get motivated and work their hardest. I like Tribe Core the most because it focuses on all aspects of the core, resulting in a more challenging and beneficial workout.

What are your goals or aspirations? 
My ultimate career goal is to become a Physical Therapist. As a Tribe Coach, I
aspire to help others reach their fitness goals and to help them become more confident about exercising. 

What is your main motivational tool or quote? 
Discomfort is the catalyst for growth. It is important to take on new challenges that are out of our comfort zones, because it will cause us to become better.
