College: Bachelor’s degree at University of Michigan

How did you get involved at Art of Strength West Bloomfield?

I started training with Mike Knight 12 years ago, six weeks after I had my second daughter. It was the best thing I could do for my mental strength and myself. Physical strength made me stronger and healthier in all aspects of my life. As a mom and a business owner I needed to be at the top of my game. Mike is the kind of person who takes 24/7 personal interest in every client’s well-being and success at every level of their life, not just the gym. I believe in Mike’s message because I have seen the results personally.

What is your favorite part about being a personal trainer?

Inspiring people to be better and see them succeed, just like I did. Also, passing along the knowledge and experience I gained.

What pushes you to push your clients to success?

I’ve been through the same struggle. I lost weight and fought the bad habits to develop a healthy lifestyle, so I know that I can help them to achieve their goal.

What would you consider your specialty at Art of Strength?

Helping clients develop confidence in their own ability to be successful while keeping it fun.

What is one of your greatest training accomplishments?

Working hard and training to lose weight to get back down to what I weighed in college after two kids and being 43 years old and developing great strength to compete.
