Run/Private pilates instructor
Where you from?
I was born in San Jose, CA, and spent my childhood in Sisters, OR. Rio Rancho, NM has been my home for the past 17 years.
What is the theme song of your life?
"Titanium", Sia and David Guetta
What is a BHAG (Big Hairy Audacious Goal) you are working on this year?
I'm coaching an Advanced Training Program for USA Fit RIO this summer and I'd like to shave five minutes off my half-marathon PR.
What is your favorite lululemon piece? How can I choose just one?
Astro Crop and Cool Racerback.
If you could only eat one meal for the rest of your life what would it be?
I love breakfast, so I'd have to say French pancakes with fresh fruit and a vanilla latte from The Grove.
What is something shocking or surprising about you?
About five years ago, I was overweight for a short period of time. That was when I decided to embark on my fitness journey and lost over 40 lbs. Being that I'm so heavily involved with fitness now, I sometimes hate telling people that I used to be "plump," but it's something that shaped me into who I am today. It also helps me relate to people that I train who are trying to lose weight.
What would your dream job be (other than teaching Pilates/run)?
I would make an excellent personal shopper for someone with lots of money to spend. Or an Olympic athlete, for beach volleyball.
What's something in the last year a student has taught you?
Take a recovery day. It's difficult at times to balance my own personal fitness goals while teaching others. My clients are so amazing and they make sure that I know that if I take a vacation, they will miss me, but they will be fine.
If you could teach a class to any historical figure, who would it be?
Marilyn Monroe. I just love her.
