My love for health and movement guided me towards an undergraduate degree in food, nutrition and dietetics, and physical education studies from Concordia College Moorhead in 1993. Since then, I have earned certifications in yoga, Pilates reformer, corrective exercise, personal training, group fitness, and behavior change. Most recently in 2020, I completed my MA in organizational Leadership through St. Catherine University.
Over the last 20 years I have been blessed with the opportunity to help others improve their mobility and energy. There is nothing more thrilling than the “a-ha” moment when a person realizes that they can proactively take charge of their physical health with their new-found knowledge. I believe everyone should be equipped with the fitness knowledge, tools and support needed to improve their overall wellbeing. I am thrilled to share my knowledge and experience to enhance the lives of others through Flostate.
My passion for health and fitness started early with participation in gymnastics, dance and high school sports. I started craving physical exertion and enjoyed pushing myself to see what I could do. I grew to love working out and the positive community it created. In 2010, I made my passion a career and became a Personal Trainer and Group Fitness Instructor. Since then, I’ve also received Boxing Fitness, Nutrition Coaching and Corrective Exercise Certifications.
I absolutely love teaching, guiding, and inspiring others to be healthy, strong and find their “fit potential”! To me, movement is our natural medicine and has the ability to heal, restore, invigorate, and optimize our minds and bodies. Welcome to Flostate!
