-Current/Previous Career: I have worked at Rush Copley for the past 13 years as a Pathologists’ Assistant. I am responsible for the gross examination and dissection of anatomic pathology specimens as well as assisting with postmortem examinations.

-How did you find Fit4Mom? I discovered Fit4Mom as I sat across the street eating donuts from My Sisters Lil’ donut shoppe and drinking coffee from the Village Grind with my kids and husband over the summer. It was an awakening to finally make a change and get back on track with my fitness. I immediately looked into it, gave Lisa a call and started the fall Transformation classes. One of the best decisions I have made.

-What has Fit4Mom done for you (or meant to you)? Through Fit4Mom, I have formed new friendships, found a village of fun & supportive moms and most importantly, found time for myself. I am so grateful for Fit4Mom because it has helped me get healthier in both mind & body, which in turn has made me a better wife and mother.

-What was your childhood ambition? To swim in the Olympics! I started swimming at a very young age. I loved being in the pool and I loved competing.

-What does motherhood mean to you? Motherhood is a never ending adventure where you get to watch your children grow and learn new things as they transform into independent amazing little humans! Motherhood is leading by example, learning new things, always listening, laughing out loud, loving unconditionally, and living in the moment!

-What is your favorite exercise? I love the HIIT workouts at Fit4Mom. It’s a lot of fun! I love anything that challenges me.

-What is your proudest moment? Becoming a Boy Mom x 3.

-What are three of your favorite things (besides your family)? Going to concerts with my husband, watching Greys Anatomy, and shopping for everything Farmhouse!

-If we asked your partner what they think your best qualities are, what would they say? My husband would say that I am strong, independent, organized & the best Mom to our boys.

-Tell us something about yourself that would surprise us: I have never been to Disney and hope that some day I can experience the magic with my husband and our 3 boys.
