I am an athlete, animal lover, and explorer born in the Bay Area. I've lived in California and all over the states. While I enjoy visiting exotic places, such as Dubai, I am a California girl to the bone. And more specifically, a country girl at heart.
Currently a resident of El Dorado County, I thoroughly enjoy the Sacramento to Lake Tahoe area. I consider myself very blessed to live in a community with such an abundance of fitness opportunities, equestrian community, adventure and nature.
I began my professional career in fitness as a Certified Personal Trainer in 2006. Since then, I have achieved a diverse fitness background with certificates ranging from general group fitness to specialties such as Spinning and Baptiste Yoga 200HR YTT. I have trained at various Southern California athletic clubs, as well as, the Ojai Valley Inn and Spa. In El Dorado County, I have coached at SwimLabs of El Dorado Hills. I am currently teaching at RubiconFit in Placerville.
While fitness is definitely part of who I am, horsemanship is the flip side of that coin. In 2011, I founded The Ranch at Hidden Oaks. My sanctuary for animals is a 501c3 non-profit organization that provides educational animal encounters to the community. (For more information on The Ranch please visit AtTheRanch.org) In addition to operating The Ranch, I provided various services to the local equestrian community. Offerings include foundational horsemanship, trail exposure/fitness, travel care, and horse-integrated yoga.
