I’m a Certified Health Coach, University of Florida Alumna (Go Gators!) and currently living in Miami, FL. I became serious about my fitness journey July 2016 and created this blog as a way to document my thoughts along the way. My goal is to create a space of creativity, empowerment and positivity. If that’s your jam, I hope you enjoy my content!
I’ve always been a driven woman with big dreams. Finding a challenging yet fulfilling career that I’m passionate about had always been a challenge for me. Something that is always consistent however, is my drive to be an entrepreneur within my chosen career. I’ve always been told to go where the money is and keep my passions as hobbies. Some people can disconnect their work + passions, but I can’t do that. I’ve tried. I’m happy to be pursuing my passions for health, fitness, and nutrition while actively creating a career path that will fulfill me. I’m so happy to have you along for the ride.
My Fitness Philosophy
Fitness shouldn’t be a chore, it should be something that you enjoy and look forward to throughout your week. I want you to enjoy working out — both mentally and physically. My website is dedicated to helping women transform their inner strength into outward desires and possibilities. You can achieve anything you set your mind to because you are already strong — this mindset will help you achieve your goals. Training and transforming the mind above all else will allow you to reach your greatest potential.
I don’t believe in a one size fits all method to health and fitness. I strongly believe that personalization is key to long lasting results. What do you love to do? For example, I am not a cardio person. The only time I add it into my routine is for a HIIT workout. Otherwise, I simply find it very boring. My personal fitness plan can’t primarily consist of cardio workouts. I will not be very happy — but, let me holla at those free weights tho.
Disclaimer: There is a difference between disliking a way of exercising because it doesn’t resonate with you or push you towards your goals, and disliking a way of exercising because it’s too hard. To understand if you genuinely dislike a way of exercising, or if you’re just being a baby (let’s be real), keep trying the same activities in different seasons in your life, in different places, in different conditions, and with different people. You’ll never know what you like and what you’re capable of until you keep trying.
Strength training and HIIT workouts excites me — it’s a way for me to transform my inner strength into outward strength, which fuels my mission here on Earth.
If you’re a woman wanting to become physically stronger, you’ve come to the right place. This is my specialty and true focus within the fitness industry. As a result, I’m pursuing my personal training certification and plan to focus exclusively on strength training and HIIT programs for women in the near future.

My Nutrition Philosophy
Nutrition is my jam. It’s a science that I’ve come to fall in love with and has only amplified since starting my personal fitness journey. First and foremost, I believe that food is fuel. It is your all access pass to optimal living. A wise man once said, “let food be thy medicine, and medicine be they food” — which I believe to be the second purpose of food. The food grown on this planet is packed with a wealth of natural healing properties, and we need to take advantage of that. Lastly, food is meant to be enjoyed. It is meant to promote happiness and communion amongst us.
Nutrition philosophy is a very personal thing, — everyone’s perspective and experience with food will be different. We’re here on this planet to learn from one another and appreciate different perspectives, the glue for the human race. Your personal nutritional choices will depend on multiple factors such as your heritage, location, biological makeup, the amount of illness/disease in your body, fitness goals, ethics, accessibility…the list goes on and on. I appreciate everyone’s perspective, but of course I have my own. I prefer to base my nutrition philosophy on a mix between science and how my body responds to a certain way of eating. With that being said, I choose to follow a whole foods plant based diet completely eliminating foods that cause inflammation to my body. Want to learn more about what a WFPB diet consists of?

I’m currently pursing an MPH with Registered Dietitian training. It would be an understatement to say that I love the world of nutrition and the healing powers of food. It has changed my life for the better inside and out.
