A Little about me

Born in Seattle yet raised in Los Angeles with roots in The Dons, Baldwin Hills and Ladera Heights. Proud alumna of Howard University and member of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. I am driven by servant leadership and passionate about building up others.

becoming a professional trainer

I was extremely active my entire life, but I didn't see that same activeness amongst my family. I wanted to discover a way to both empower them and myself to redefine active living. My purpose became evident with my father's passing from a sudden heart attack linked to "morbid obesity" the year I became a personal trainer. That's when I realized it was bigger than me and my family. I became -" How could I help people live a longer life so they could enjoy more time with their loved ones?

 

Nonetheless, access to holistic wellness and boutique fitness classes is extremely limited within my community, and why should people drive across town for personal and diverse fitness experiences? Well, here we are with Thrive Health Lab founded in purpose and designed to provide comprehensive training and community support in their pursuit of a healthier lifestyle.

i choose to train at thrive because

It's a heart centered space that serves those in need of compassionate, comprehensive training and support as they pursue a healthier lifestyle. I have witnessed the downturn of the health and wellness of my neighboring community due to a lack of resources and accessibility to educational and empowering fitness-focused services. Build it and they will come, they will learn, they will THRIVE!
