Metabolic, Strength & Water Sports

I was born and raised in Texas, and graduated from the University of Texas Austin with a BA in Business Marketing. I worked as a corporate recruiter in Dallas and married Brad, my college sweetheart, while he was in his 3rd year of Med School. We have been happily married for 32 years and have four daughters, my oldest, Paige, and Claire, Kristen & Courtney who are triplets. I have also been blessed with two beautiful grandchildren, Solomon and Scarlett.

The youngest of 6 children, I was raised in a chaotic, active and fun household. Playing outdoors and in the water was a huge part of our childhood. We were blessed with parents that encouraged an adventurous lifestyle. My father wakes each morning looking forward to his “adventure” for the day, and he turns 90 this year! His philosophy is “a healthy and active body keeps a healthy and active mind.” He is still the smartest man I know.

Daily exercise has always been a significant part of my life. I love any form of outdoor activity, but have always had a “love affair” with water. I grew up on a lake and was an avid water skier at the age of 5. I couldn’t wait to drive the boat, and my Dad gave me the wheel at the age of 9. I have been behind the wheel or behind the boat throughout my life, teaching my childhood friends how to ski, and now getting to teach skiing, wake surfing and wakeboarding to our amazing women of iGnite.

Staying strong and healthy is the greatest gift we can give ourselves. I believe that if we make fitness a part of our lifestyle, it becomes increasingly easy to LIVE and be well. I am truly inspired every day by the men and women I am blessed to train, and strive each day to make a positive impact on their lives.

This life God has blessed me with just gets better every year! I look forward to each day as a new adventure, just as my father does. I am truly enjoying the “ride” and can’t wait to see where HE takes me next!

  It is never too late

to be what you

might have been.
