    I've been a part of FIT4MOM Olympia since 2012 and it absolutely changed my life. I struggled with postpartum depression and FIT4MOM Olympia helped me gain an amazing supportive village as well as be healthy inside and out. I don't have a fitness background, but FIT4MOM showed me how much fun and rewarding working out can be. I jumped at the opportunity to help other people the way FIT4MOM Olympia helped me.

    Outside of running FIT4MOM Olympia; I love to hike, garden, scrapbook, paint and watch movies.

    I was born in South Texas and moved to the northwest to go to school in Oregon. We moved to Washington for my husband’s job. I got a degree in art with emphasis in photography, sculpture & painting.

    I am a Mom to 2 crazy little boys, Garrett & Wyatt. My husband, Jason, and I run a small hobby farm with beef cows, ducks, a huge garden and 2 geese.

    I first became involved with Fit4mom in West Seattle, when my first son Henry was about 4 months old. Over the next year I fell so much in love with the program - the sisterhood, the great workouts, the social and emotional development support it provides the kiddos - that I became an instructor myself. When my family moved back to Olympia (where I grew up) I jumped at the chance to become involved with the Olympia Fit4mom village!

    Before becoming a mom I was a clinical social worker providing child and family therapy. I believe so strongly in the importance of community - especially for women with young children! - and am so grateful for the Fit4Mom community.

    I am mom to Henry who is 3 and August who is 1.

    I grew up in Olympia and I first discovered FIT4MOM and Stroller Strides in April of 2016 when my daughter was about 5 months old and I’ve been attending classes regularly ever since. My husband, Rand is a pilot so I spend a lot of time solo parenting our two children Avery (2015) and Gavin (2018) and the Village has been and continues to be such a great support network for me. I completed the certification to become a Stroller Strides instructor in October 2018 and I am so excited to continue my journey with FIT4MOM. I really enjoy cooking, reading, hiking, running and healthy living in general.
