Excuses are now behind me, but I did let myself go over the last two to three years. I was working a job with long hours, building a house, and definitely NOT taking care of myself. I started exercising again last fall (2010), but was not getting the results that I wanted. I turned 50 last October, and thought that aging did indeed make it harder to lose weight and get back into shape. I was having a very hard time accepting this fact and was looking for options.

Then came the infomercial for P90X. My husband and I, like so many others, watched it, researched it, and decide to try it. We couldn’t wait to get started. Once we did, we thought… “what the heck did we get ourselves into!” I couldn’t even do one pullup, and all pushups were on my knees. I had to take multiple breaks to let my heart rate come down… but we kept pushing play, we brought it every day, we’ve stayed true to our diet and today we feel stronger, healthier and even happier. It’s true that feeling good and having more energy affects your mood and overall well being. One month into the program I decided that I wanted to help people realize the same success that I was having. I joined Team Beachbody and am now pursuing a second career.

I am also a Physician Assistant working in the field of Trauma and General Surgery….and love it! I enjoy working with and helping people. I live in Virginia, but I’m originally from Texas. I have six awesome children, one adorable granddaughter, an amazing husband, two Labrador retrievers and two cats. I absolutely love being outside and wish it wasn’t so bad for you to get a suntan (yes, I do use sunscreen). I love to cook (when I have time) and have fun coming up with new recipes that are healthy and taste yummy. I changed jobs and now have more time to take care of myself and my family.

I have gotten amazing results with P90X and would love to help you do the same. Please email me at or visit my website at for more information on transforming your life. Let me coach you for FREE. I will help you realize your dreams of a healthier, happier you.

Can’t wait to meet you!
