How did you get started in fitness? What was your first exposure?
My parents got me started young with Teaball, Upwards Basketball/Cheerleading and then AYSO soccer while I was in elementary school. I was also very active in high school where I participated in field hockey, marching band and my personal favorite – bowling!
Who influenced you along the way? Tell us about your mentors.
My parents were a huge influence! Mom was my coach for most sports we did as children. Between her and dad they would coach 4-6 teams a season with Upward, splitting it between cheerleading and basketball. I really wanted to do Field Hockey my senior year, but there were no coaches, so mom took over that position as well! When I graduated from high school I became her bookkeeper and ‘Assistant to the Assistant Coach’ where I continued to spread my love for the sport for at least three years.
I would also like to thank Amanda Smith who introduced me to classes like Hip-Hop Cardio and P90x at the Milton YMCA, and also Autumn Potter, who got me hooked on Yoga classes here in Lewisburg.
What do you do for fun?
I enjoy taking Krista Peterson’s Yoga Pop class on Wednesday nights! But I also adore hanging out with my siblings. Either going out to eat or attending fairs, festivals, or town events. But most of all, I like to unwind watching movies or TV shows.
What is on your bucket list?
To go on a Cruise!
Favorite Food or Candy?
Food: Pulled pork sandwiches or any type of loaded nacho! Candy: I’m a sucker for any type of chocolate that has caramel in it.
Favorite Travel Spot?
2022 was the first time I actually took a vacation, like, ever! I went to Mexico in February and Ireland in October. Both were beautiful and I would love to go back again (if someone else foots the bill that is!)
Favorite Movie? Book?
Movies and also Books: The Hobbit and/or Lord of the Rings series and also Jim Henson’s Labyrinth.
Any hidden talents? Fun Facts?
I grew up doing 4-H when I was younger. It was there I learned to harness skills in sewing, photography, hiking, and baking/cooking. I consistently won blue or red ribbons for most events I entered in. But my favorite one was cake decorating. I am still known to put those skills to use!
