Get to Know Me

I'm a certified personal trainer, a fitness instructor, and a registered nurse, but first and foremost I am a mom of four. I am a goal-setting girl boss who can't imagine a world without chocolate and peanut butter (combined, preferably). Most days you can find me trying to balance my life: keeping a clean house, making healthy meals for my family, and shuttling my kids to cubscouts and gymnastics, all while serving in my church, reading uplifting literature, and raising responsible citizens.

It can be exhausting to keep all the balls in the air! But I know how important it is to recharge with some me time. When I get my sweat on, throw some heavy weights around, and fuel my body with the right nutrition, I’m a better wife, mom, sister, and friend.

There’s no reason why you or your body goals should be pushed to the back burner because you’re a mom with a bajillion responsibilities. I work with moms (and dads!) who need to jump start their fitness goals, from losing fat, gaining muscle, or simply developing a better relationship with food. I can teach you how to get a rockin’ body that you’ll love at every stage of life, whether you’re a twenty-something professional or a grandmother of 12.

Here are five things you might not know about me.

  • I’m a Mormon. I know it; I live it; I love it. Bonus points for whoever can name that General Conference talk!
  • While TV isn’t my favorite pastime, I have seen every single episode of The West Wing three times. #SeabornLyman2020
  • To finish nursing school, I spent a semester as a student nurse working the night shift on the Labor & Delivery floor. I would get off at 7 A.M., sleep on the floor of my classmate’s unheated cabin for four hours, and then attend classes during the day before driving an hour back to my house. Did I mention this was in Pennsylvania? In the winter? And I was pregnant? Yep.
  • My favorite sweets combo will forever and always be chocolate and peanut butter, but when it comes to savory food, gimme anything with lime and cilantro.
  • I’ve never been to a concert. Ever. Obviously I was a weird teenager. (Any must-see suggestions?)
