You will have easy access to contact your coach that goes beyond the typical weekly check-ins model used in most traditional nutrition coaching platforms. Our number one goal is to help you be successful. While we have many different packages to fit different budgets, take a moment to ask yourself, what is it worth to you to find optimal health? Our goal is not to keep you as a client forever but to arm you with the tools to be successful.
I have always had a passion for fitness & nutrition, so in 2008 I decided to quit my career as a Graphic Designer and take my passion to the next level. That’s when I started my career as a Personal Trainer and Nutrition Coach. I love teaching others the importance of good nutrition, proper supplementation, and working out. Hearing my clients’ stories about how much better their lives are since they began eating right and working out is an amazing feeling knowing that I was a small part in their journey to a healthier life. I thrive on helping others reach their goals, whether it’s weight loss, muscle gain, sports performance, strength gain, or simply better health.
As a trainer & coach I’ve helped hundreds of people transform their bodies for bodybuilding competitions, powerlifting meets, running events, CrossFit competitions, pageants, and many many LIFE transformations! I also have the huge honor of being head coach of the Special Olympics Powerlifting program in the Springfield, MO area.
I have been an athlete all my life since age 6 when I began gymnastics. I have always competed in some sort of sport, starting with gymnastics, softball, cheerleading, track and field, high school & collegiate soccer, 5 K’s, 10 K’s, half marathons, bodybuilding, powerlifting, & finally in 2017 my passion for CrossFit began.
My highlights as an athlete are; finishing my one and only Half Marathon, winning my weight class & placing 2nd overall at the USPA Worlds Powerlifting Meet, placing top 100 in the world in the Crossfit Open Online Qualifier 40-44 category, competing as a natural pro figure competitor, and earning my IFBB Pro card in the Figure category.
Now I’m training at CrossFit Republic and giving nutritional advice to my CrossFit Republic family whom I love and have grown so close to. I’m excited to help others achieve their goals not just inside but outside of CrossFit Republic and BEYOND!
Packages – Includes initial consultation (if needed), macro-based nutrition plan and food suggestions, supplementation recommendations, cardio recommendations (if/when needed) twice weekly check-ins, unlimited email communication.

In September of 2016 I first walked through the doors of Crossfit Republic. I was 42 years old, had a 3 year old daughter and was wanting to lose weight and get healthy. I had never done any type of physical fitness, so I really had zero background in fitness. I immediately fell in love with the culture and community and knew this was going to become part of my life.
In March 2017 one of the CFR coaches was introducing the new “CFR Nutrition program” and he said something that changed the course of my life. He said “If you are coming to the workouts and giving it your all in the gym, but going home and destroying all your results in the kitchen, what’s the point?” That statement was so profound, because I had been doing crossfit for 6 months and hadn’t seen the results I wanted. It was 100% what I was or wasn’t doing in the kitchen. So, I signed up for the program. In one year I lost 50lbs from my body. My life was literally transformed over that year. I became passionate about the process of reclaiming my life, my health and ultimately my destiny, so I got my Fitness and Nutrition Certification and started coaching clients at Crossfit Republic in April of 2018.
Since my initial weight loss, I have maintained that 50lb loss and have become stronger and healthier than I ever imagined at the age of 47!
What you can expect from me as a coach:
I am very hands on. I will walk with you through your journey with empathy because I have walked this same road and I am still walking it. I never ask my clients to do things that I am not myself also doing.
We will work together for you to figure out what your goals are and then dig deep into them together. I practice ‘habit-based” coaching, which is learning 1 habit at a time. I will never ask you to change everything at once, that is a recipe for failure. Instead, I will have you work on getting better at one thing, then once we have that, we will move to the next. This program isn’t a quick fix, but I promise that if you put in the work you will see results. The beauty of it not being a quick fix is that the habits you create will help you to have a life change that is lasting. My own journey is a testament to that.
We will look at sleep, water intake, stress management, healthy plates, meal prep/planning, movement in the gym as well as recovery and mobility.
The one thing that I have learned over and over in my own personal journey is that nutrition is the secret weapon to fitness and wellness. Many overlook it, but it is key. You cannot do enough “workouts” to compensate for a poor diet, I promise, I have tried as have many others.
If you are ready to be intentional about your wellness, this is the next step!

Is a higher quality of life worth a small daily investment?
How much will you save on insurance premiums, doctors’ visits, prescriptions, and missed days of work?
We often find ourselves waiting for the “perfect time” to get in shape. The more we try for “perfect timing”, the worse our long-term health becomes. The time is now, because right now is what you have. What are you waiting for? Take one day at a time, one step at a time and twelve months from today you will be celebrating your success instead of looking back to where you wish you could be if you would have started. Let us help you break that cycle.
