Following My Heart and Passion
I spent 18 years in the Corporate World, “living the dream”. Like many other women, I prided myself on being independent and living that balanced life. I got to do all the things: buy a condo, travel the world. Yet, I was not fulfilled.
At the end of 2017, I finally made a very big change. I left the corporate world and my job as an Associate Director in IT (which is just a fancy way of saying I managed a small team of Business Analysts). I took a big leap of faith to pursue the exciting possibilities of starting my own business. I surrendered totally and happily to the universe telling me it was time to follow my heart and my passion.
My whole adult life I have been healthy and active. I have always been head over heels in love with working out. It knew it was time to professionally enter the Health and Fitness world. I began my journey by recently becoming a Certified Personal Trainer through NASM this past February (of 2018), and most recently, I received my Behavior Change Specialist certification.
Marrying My Experiences
I undeniably learned so much in my past career that I will need in my new business. Managing, leading and mentoring people had been what kept me going for years. It has made me a great communicator, facilitator and role model. It makes perfect sense that I have become a Lifestyle and Fitness Coach and a Personal Trainer. It marries my experiences both professionally and personally.
I am absolutely addicted to CrossFit, which I do about 5-7 times a week. I am religious about taking Sundays as total rest days because our bodies need recovery as much as they need to workout. From time to time, I will go for a hike, a light run or climb some seriously daunting stairs. I basically spend more time in workout clothes than I do in anything else. Being active is the center of who I am.
I also LOVE writing (I minored in it in college). I have been blogging for years, and it is almost like another form of therapy for me in a different way than exercise. That also means you can most definitely expect some great content on my site in the blogs I post.
I moved to Los Angeles almost 9 years ago from New Jersey and the lifestyle here absolutely suits me. I do miss my family terribly, especially my 5 nieces and nephews. I do get to see them a few times a year, and thanks to FaceTime, I at least can virtually hang out with them many times a week.
I look forward to getting to know you!
