1. What’s one thing most people don’t know about you?
I’ve been DJ’ing since I was a teenager. I think I started when I was either sixteen or seventeen.
2. What is your go-to “healthy” snack or meal? What is your go-to “treat”?
My go-to healthy snack is cottage cheese with blueberries drizzled with honey. My go-to treat changes often. Lately, the preferred treat is the Super Baked Cookie from The Soup Peddler.
3. What are your top 3 favorite exercises of the moment?
Single-Leg RDL’s (Romanian Deadlift), Hip Thrusts, Pull-ups
4. Describe your health and fitness philosophy in ONE WORD. Why that word?
Adaptive is the word I would use to describe my health and fitness philosophy. Minds fluctuate and bodies change so it is important to be flexible with our fitness goals and exercise regimen, within reason.
5. How will clients feel after working with you?
I hope clients will feel challenged, educated, and more curious about movement.
