I graduated from the National Personal Training Institute with Certifications in Personal Training, Basic Nutrition, Balanced Habits Nutrition, Shoulder and Arm Injuries and Suspension Training with specialties in weight loss management.
Let’s be honest here, I can go on and on boring you with my accomplishments but I know what you care about most is how I can help you achieve your personal goals. What you may not know about me is we have a lot in common. Unlike most trainers I once was in your shoes battling issues with my own weight-loss and self-confidence so I understand the time, dedication, accountability and compassion needed to reach your fitness goals. My continuation of education in the fitness field, intensity and passion for what I do makes me the ideal trainer for anyone who lacks the energy, willpower and knowledge to sustain a healthy and fit lifestyle. My trainers and I will do everything in our power to help you build that solid foundation to totally transform your life. When you work with the Rebel Fit team your goals become our goals and It would be an honor to work by your side on this exciting journey. #iRebel

Battling back from injury I finished my collegiate career and sought out to understand more about the body.
Fitness and Wellness soon consumed my life and helping people became my new passion. Through a deep knowledge of Kettlebell training I have found my true calling. Being a motivator and Educator in health and fitness has given me purpose.

My passion with nutrition is three fold. 1. I love how food is so healing. You can legit heal or prevent just about any ailment through food, and create massive generational health shifts through food knowledge and application. 2. I love how you can take very simple ingredients and turn them into a healthy meal. 3. I love showing people how you can healthy can be so delicious and indulgent.

Tell us a little bit about you. Where you are from, what drives your passion for the particular position etc
I was born in the Caribbean on the island of St Kitts, at age seven my Mom moved us the the US Virgin Islands(St Thomas). I’ve been in Virginia for nineteen years. At the age of 50 I decided I was tired of how I looked and felt and decided to make a change. I joined Rebelfit five years ago and haven’t looked back.
