In August 2022, I discovered KUMA, marking the end of my cycle of exercise frustration. At KUMA, I feel empowered, not defeated. This experience transformed my self-view and body image, inspiring me to support other women as a coaching and foundations assistant since 2023, and now training as a coach. Beyond KUMA, I analyze for a grocery retailer, cherish life with my high school sweetheart, and revel in being an Auntie and dog mom to Clifford, the Little Red Dog. My joys include travel, culinary adventures, musical theater, and ocean escapes.
