I have always been very passionate about health and fitness. My primary education includes a BA from UC Santa Barbara (Major in Biology/Pre-Med) and a Masters Degree in Science (Eastern Medicine). I spent many years studying the human body, and then practiced Eastern Medicine to help people achieve health through lifestyle changes, nutrition & acupuncture. I was always fascinated by the fact that simple nutritional adjustments & exercise could often cure my patients of their many ailments.
In 2008, I started teaching group fitness in San Diego, California. Teaching group exercise and my background in Eastern Medicine led to a new passion for me to bring health, nutrition and fitness to people all around the world!
I created Earn That Body in 2009. My goal was to create a program and platform that would enable me to do all of my personal training and nutritional coaching ONLINE. The program expanded at a rapid rate due to the incredible results my clients were achieving! Since Earn That Body began, I have added numerous online programs including Shred That Body ( to get RIPPED in 30 days), Shred2 (the ULTIMATE get ripped challenge), ETB-TOX (NON detox program to get back to healthy eating), Back on Track, Team ETB Half Marathon Training, Private Nutrition for Athletes and several challenges on the Earn That Body Platform.
My certifications include: AFAA Personal Trainer, AFAA Group Exercise Instructor, Spinning by Mad Dogg Athletics, Kranking, YogaFit, TurboKick, Stroller Strides and Body Back. I also have a Certification in Fitness Nutrition through ISSA.

I was selected to be on the Mad Dogg Athletics Spinning Demo Team 2005. I have appeared in the following fitness DVDs and Infomercials: Cheryl Burke’s (Dancing with the Stars) Disco Abs, host model for Spinning/ Mad Dogg Athletics and Mama Wants her Body Back. I’m proud to be an ACE Webinar Presenter! And contributed content to magazines like Austin Woman Magazine, Austin Fit Magazine and the Livestrong Blog.
