The iGnite community inspires me!
Cardio, Strength & Core
Background in Health & Wellness:
I grew up loving to be very active! I was a gymnast and a cheerleader for most of my young years and went on to study Nutrition at the University of Texas, graduating with my Bachelor’s degree in 2010. My kids keep me very, very active these days so I do my iGniting at home when I can.
My iGnite Journey:
I found iGnite 10 years ago when I needed a change in my life. I know God knew what He was doing when I was introduced to Neissa by a mutual friend. I was unhappy at my previous job, and had never experienced stress like that before. I was taught to finish everything I started, but I knew my body, mind and spirit couldn't handle the negative environment any longer, so I made a decision, never looked back, and I’ve been with iGnite for 4 years!
I LOVE what I do, who I work with, and the women I’m surrounded by every day. I think the best part is that I’m inspired, motivated and challenged every day in my job. Knowing that I am a part of a warm, welcoming and supportive community is amazing.
Something People May Not Know About Me:
I don’t have a sense of smell. Can I taste you might ask? Yes, but I can certainly eat bland foods and be happy!
I'm from Beaumont, Texas and moved to Austin in 2006 to attend The University of Texas. By the time I was a senior, I knew I was never going to leave! There's so much to love about this city! I've been married to my sweet husband, Clayton, for 8 years and enjoy life with him every single day! Together we have four children: Hope - who would be 4 - is in heaven, Henry is 3, McCauley is 2, and Thomas is 2 months. God has blessed us immensely.
What Inspires Me Most:
Like I mentioned above, I am inspired daily. Being one of the youngest on our team, I look up to all of the women I work with. I treasure and value their advice and take it to heart. The iGnite community inspires me. It is amazing getting to teach women from all different walks of life. I learn something new from them every day. My parents, who have been happily married for over 30 years, inspire me in a new way now that I am married. I seek their wisdom. And lastly, but not least, God amazes me and blesses me every single day. He calls us to serve, love and share, and I feel like I am doing just that in iGnite.

My dad has always told me “You catch more flies with honey than vinegar.”
