Owner & Head Coach
I took my first group travel retreat at the age of 7. My parents have always loved to travel and both were (and still are) group travel leaders for educational trips throughout the U.S., Europe, Asia, Australia, and Central America. Growing up we traveled each and every school vacation and by the time I reached college I had co-led more than 20 trips
My career in the fitness industry started in 1999 as a boxing instructor in my home town of Seattle, Washington. I took on my first private clients shortly thereafter. Over the past 18 years I have immersed myself in the study of fitness, health and wellness and have been certified in a variety of fitness and nutrition methodologies. I realized, very early on, that movement and the way people from other cultures move fascinated me. My degree in Athropology provided me with the skills I needed to better understand these cultures. I have traveled to China to study yoga and meditation, Thailand to observe and participate in Muay-Thai and Korea for cooking lessons. In my travels I’ve found that there is no single method or "way" that is always the right "way". Instead, I try to incorporate multiple ideas and focus on finding the right "way" for the client I am working with.
