My background was originally in hospitality management. When I was working in the hospitality industry, I felt so unhappy and unhealthy that I bit the bullet and hired my first personal trainer.
I was always interested in the weight room and weight training, but was intimidated and had no idea how to start. Not long after I was hooked! I loved fitness and training so much, within the first year, I got my Fitness Trainer Certification and shortly after became a Nationally Qualified NPC Bikini competitor.
My life goal is to bring others into a fit and healthy lifestyle while coaching them to develop, implement and live with positive fitness and nutritional habits.
With over twenty five years of fitness, rehabilitation and traditional martial arts training I’ve learned how to face change and create discipline; how to master one’s self, blow past set backs, fight to reach that “impossible” goal and continually drive toward the best life. Being able to show you how to win that fight; teach you how create fitness and feed your body for health and how to incorporate regular exercise into your life is what I do. As a Personal Trainer, making it effective, efficient, challenging and fun is my priority. If you struggle to maintain health and fitness as a priority in your life, let me help you.

I am an expert in Exercise Physiology, ocean activist, community-builder, lover, and author of "The Mermaid Diet", a cookbook. From Oceanside, California, I am a San Diego native that is true to her roots as a Mexican-American; learning Spanish as a first language. My fitness journey first began as a child, actively participating in sports. However, my journey took a turn, when I was a hit by a drunk driver at the age of 22. Having to recover from those injuries, I fell in love with human potential. I believe there is true magic when we can tap into both, the physical and mental aspects of health that allow us to reach optimal performance in all areas of our lives. Having worked with athletes in the NFL, Olympic Games, and Bodybuilding Federation, I have customized training programs for all body types and fitness levels, based on each individual's lifestyle and performance goals. I also hold a Master Degree in Kinesiology. I have shared my research at the ACSMSW Regional Conference, discussing the effects of diet during an exercise intervention. I am a fan of pushing new limits and unlocking new potential. As an example of that, I have entered in my first NPC Bikini Competition in 2018 and qualified for Nationals. After competing in several other shows, including Nationals, my greatest tip to share with fellow athletes is stressing the importance of rest and recovery just as much as hard work.
"You're stronger than you think."
You get one life to live. That's all the motivation you need to create the best version of yourself in fitness and in life. I focus on proper movement and pushing people to their limits mentally and physically.
My training and coaching style mirrors how I believe life is to lived.
It should be exciting and uplifting with moments of intense struggle because in those moments, we grow in body, mind, and sprit.
