Why is fitness important to you?

Fitness has strengthened me physically, spiritually, and emotionally. I am a particular fan of group fitness because you meet people to encourage you, hold you accountable, and challenge you throughout your fitness journey and beyond!

Why would you tell someone to try True40?

True40 has been such a blessing to me since the first time I walked through the door! It is a place where people of all ages and fitness levels can strengthen their bodies and surround themselves with a positive community of people. Who wouldn’t want to be a part of that? :)

What are you deathly afraid of?

Being enclosed in a small space and not being able to get out!

If you were stuck on a desert island, what 3 things would you bring?

A boat, a pocket knife, and a rope! (Can you tell I’ve watched a few seasons of Survivor?)

What is one item on your bucket list?

I want to travel out of the country! I would love to visit Italy where my great-grandparents were born.

Where are you from and where did you grow up?

I have moved around a good bit, starting with my birth in Gadsden, AL. My family moved to Hoover where we lived for ten years before moving to Cartersville, GA. After two years there, I moved to Troy, AL to attend school. Ultimately, I claim Hoover as my hometown!

What is the best piece of advice you’ve ever been given?

My grandmother always says to me, “Let Go and Let God.” When you release control of your life to your Creator, He can do abundantly more than all you can ask or imagine! | “Now all glory to God, who is able, through his mighty power at work within us, to accomplish infinitely more than we might ask or think.” ‭‭Eph.‬ ‭3:20‬ ‭

How do you love your body and stay true to you?

I have learned that surrounding myself with positive people, giving myself grace, taking time to rest, and finding balance in all aspects of my life helps me stay true to myself!! Also- I’m not afraid to say Y E S to dessert! ;)
