Motivational Speaker


In 2016 I lost 91 pounds and completely changed my life! My weight loss journey failed when I focused on HOW. It wasn't until I switched my focus to WHY that I truly transformed myself.

Losing weight and getting healthy has nothing to do with luck. You have to remain disciplined and focused. Set your sights on your goal and go after it!

I currently facilitate two WW® Wellness workshops per week and tour the US/Canada with a monthly 'Fun Run' in a city near you!
