INTERESTS/HOBBIES:
Outside of the WAC, I love spending time outdoors running, biking, kayaking, or hiking. I am on a mission to hike in all of Wisconsin's State Parks! I also love supporting  local coffee shops, visiting farmer's markets, and exploring hidden gems in Wisconsin!

PHILOSOPHY:
"The best kind of exercise is the kind that feels good. Only you know your own body."   My goal is to teach individuals how to move their own bodies in a way that feels good to them.  Movement should not be boring, uncomfortable, or unenjoyable and I want to share my knowledge of improving movement quality and finding joy in exercise with WAC members.
