My story: I am a freelance writer, ACE Certified Personal Trainer, and teach marketing and communication courses for several colleges (in my PJs from home). I own and operate a Karna Fitness franchise in my Florida hometown. In 2013, I was honored to be named Karna Fitness Franchise Owner of the Year. I am a graduate of Florida State University with an M.A. in Corporate & Public Communication. Juggling career, family, and life can be a circus. To keep from being institutionalized, I always try to keep a sense of humor, not take myself too seriously, watch trashy reality shows on Bravo, and offer my perspective on life in my blog, MamaOnTheRun.com.
Proud mama of: My gentle spirited four-year-old, Finn and my feisty firecracker, two-year-old, Stella. Their little sister, Baby #3, will welcome herself to our family this coming summer.
My favorite fitness product: Gymboss Timer - love interval training!
If I could train with one person, living or dead, it would be: Jillian Michaels. I would gladly be scolded and reprimanded by her if I could have her guns.
My favorite skinny recipe: Skinny Buffalo Wing Hummus.
If I could eat one food as often as I wanted without worry, it would be: Cheese, cheese, cheese...melted, shredded, cream, or moldy - love it all.
Three things on my bucket list are: A full marathon, short hair, and giving up coffee. The marathon is the most likely.
My celebrity crush is: Ty Pennington. I have a list of honey-dos I would love for him to tackle.
Most played song on my workout playlist: Defying Gravity, Wicked Soundtrack. It will forever be my pick-me-up when I need inspiration.
Last thing I read: Innovative Marketing Concepts (I'm a teacher!)
