I couldn't have asked for anything better than growing up in one of the most beautiful places in the country, Colorado. I had such an active childhood which transferred into my adulthood (shhhh, don't tell anyone I used the "A" word) and I love sharing that passion with others throughout the community! 


The value of continuous self-development was instilled in me at a young age. After dedicating myself as a successful Division I wrestler, I decided to establish Obstacle Destruction as a means to share my knowledge and passion for fitness and a healthier lifestyle.  I realize the gym may not work for everyone, so I utilize Colorado's great outdoors with the amazing parks we have and provide satisfying workout sessions inside and out.

​Along my journey, I've also become involved in the Deaf and Hard-of-Hearing community and developed a passion for American Sign Language. One of my goals is to develop new fitness opportunities for the Deaf and Hard-of-Hearing community in Colorado where I can have direct communication.


So, if you're looking just to get back into shape or you want to train for a large obstacle race, you've come to the right place.  I look forward to hearing from you about any of your fitness needs and taking your active world to a whole new level.

Fitness for me is an opportunity to live an exciting and healthy life and share my excitement with others. Being active has always been a part of my life.  Throughout my childhood I played a variety of sports and enjoyed being outside creating fun activities to keep me entertained.


I became a mom as a young adult and shortly after my second child I really started my fitness journey. I realized at that time that I needed to be a positive role model for my family and take my health seriously. I worked through various fitness programs and began to enjoy every aspect of weight training, cardio and nutrition. I realized that a career in the fitness industry would allow me to motivate others to find the drive they need to create a healthy life of their own.

My aim for clients is to help set realistic goals and motivate them every step of the way. I understand that everyone’s journey is different and I want to help clients find their motivation and passion so that they can achieve their goals, no matter what they may be. Whether it’s weight loss, toning or just being active, I’m excited to help you get started and help you reach your fitness goals.

Born and raised in Boulder, CO I have been an athlete my entire life, with a main focus in strength and conditioning. Throughout my college athletic career I experienced numerous setbacks through injury, which drove me towards understanding how I could better my body and my mind to reach my own peak performance. My academic career shifted focus my sophomore year to Sports Psychology, which added imperative knowledge about how mindset impacts our ability to train successfully and achieve our goals. Post college I stayed on as an assistant coach for the women’s soccer team, implementing fitness and strength training programs. 

I returned to Colorado shortly there after to find myself working a marketing job I disliked. Feeling stagnant and unhappy with myself I found myself jumping back into my true passion, strength training. I later found myself on O.D.’s door step for my own personal training and the rest is history. I am humbled to be part of the fitness team and cannot wait to help my clients push themselves and reach their own fitness goals!
