Hi everyone! I am excited to be a part of the wonderful MissFIT team, as physical fitness has always been a huge component of my life. As my parents will attest, I started running at 9 months and haven’t stopped since! I have always enjoyed outdoor activities: running, swimming, biking, etc. and for a large portion of my life, I played softball. In high school, I also began coaching young girls in softball, and ran skill related clinics and taught private lessons. As I began playing softball less competitively, I began to focus more on coaching, and keeping up my fitness by running, swimming, and taking group classes (step aerobics, kickboxing, etc).
In 2004, I began my career as a Special Educator at Deerfield High School, and coached in the softball program for 7 years.
In 2007, my husband exposed me to yoga, and I fell in love with it! It was a perfect balance to my running, and it calmed my mind after a stressful day of work and coaching. I found that yoga truly balances strength and flexibility, and because it’s all about your own personal journey, it can be individualized to fit each person’s health and fitness needs. In the fall of 2010, I decided to pursue teaching training, and it has been one of the best decisions I ever made. Because yoga teacher training had such a significant impact on me, I decide to take a break from coaching and pursue a life of balance. I truly feel blessed to share yoga with others, and in turn, have students share their yoga with me!
My husband Adam and I grew up in the Libertyville area, and currently live in Gurnee, IL. We enjoy traveling the world (Thailand this summer!), cooking & eating (I believe healthy food should taste amazing!), learning new languages, laughing, listening to live music, spending time with friends and family, and living life to the fullest!
