Tell us about yourself

I personally went through my own weight loss/fitness journey. After losing over 100 pounds, I started helping others achieve their weight loss/ fitness goals. I started Mindset Fitness and Wellness and am currently certified through NASM with specializations in weight loss, youth exercise, corrective exercise, and performance enhancement. Helping others feel their best is what motivates me each day to train.

Being on top of everything, including providing the service, growing the business, accounting, customer service, and social media.
