Parenting is the workout that never ends. And if you're pregnant, that workout begins the moment you discover it's not just you in your body anymore! I got pregnant in December of 2019, and had planned to be the "fit preggo lady at the gym" working out until it was time to go to the hospital.
But 2020 had other plans.
I used my pandemic pregnancy experience to learn all I could about prenatal and postpartum fitness so that I could maintain and gain strength during pregnancy, experience a healthy delivery of my baby, and begin parenthood with the movement patterns that would help me get through each day (and night) by rebuilding my core and overall strength.
As a result I became certified as a personal trainer through the National Academy of Sports Medicine (NASM) and am a Pre/Postnatal Fitness Specialist through PRONatal Fitness.
I am also an ordained clergy person, and I believe in movement as a spiritual practice that helps us heal and connect to a greater sense of meaning and purpose.
There is nothing so sacred (and, at times, scary) as bringing new life into the world and caring for yourself and this new human.
None of us is meant to go through life's transitions alone, and I am passionate about coming alongside people seeking to become their healthiest and strongest selves.
