Nutrition Coach, and I am the owner of Grace Fitness and Nutrition.
I am a CrossFit Coach and Pregnancy and Postpartum Athleticism Coach (PPA), with a mission to help women navigate how to start or continue to live their active and healthy lifestyle throughout these chapters with both fitness and nutrition coaching. I never want another woman to say, “I wish I would have known” like I have said myself many times. Now, I DO know, and I am sharing the knowledge and information with women like you.
How did I get here? I was a competitive cheerleader for many years, and have always loved being active and healthy. I found CrossFit in 2011 and instantly fell in love. I also become passionate about helping people find the same success in becoming fit and healthy, got certified and have been coaching and learning about fitness and nutrition ever since. In addition to being a PPA Coach, I am a CrossFit Level 2, USAW Level 1, Precision Nutrition Level 1, Certified Online Trainer, and a Certified Pre-Postnatal Coach through the Girls Gone Strong Academy. I have continued my education on many levels, including becoming a PopUp Professional (pelvic organ prolapse), Antony Lo’s The Female Athlete Course Levels 1 and 2 and his mentorship program. I have since assisted him on The Female Athlete Course Level 1 and found that I also have a passion for teaching other medical and fitness professionals.
Why am I passionate about pregnancy and postpartum fitness? I am so passionate about this because of my own experience training through pregnancy and postpartum. As a Coach, I thought I would be ok, but the truth was I was completely uneducated about these chapters and the pelvic floor. I ended up with diastasis recti and an umbilical hernia after my first child and I want to share my knowledge with YOU, to help prevent or lessenany current symptoms you may have. If you have pelvic floor issues (incontinence, prolapse, ab separation, pelvic pain etc.), I am here to help you work out functionally, while achieving your fitness goals. I want to help YOU feel healthy again, and to be able to do the things you love now and years down the roaI believe everyone is stronger than they think they are, and I’d love to think I can help you see this about yourself. *Beauty in Strength*
I’m on a mission to educate and empower you with the tools you need to achieve not only your short term goals, but also your long term lasting goals. I want YOU to become the best version of yourself that you can be.
While I am a coach, I believe that I am your guide and you are in the driver’s seat. I am there to support you where you are at, and provide you with education, guidance, and coaching to achieve your goals. You are always in control of your body and you get to make the decisions.
I will never tell you “No, you can’t do that”.
