Becoming a mother can be terrifying. When I left my banking career in February 2017 to become a stay-at-home mom to newborn Catherine, I found myself searching for a community of mothers and their children to help us through this new experience. The FIT4MOM community offered exactly what I needed with the added benefit of a regular exercise routine.

My greatest passions are motherhood and helping people through challenging experiences. For many years I was a volunteer tax preparer helping clients through the difficulty of tax filing. I was honored with the 2012 Volunteer of the Year award for this role. Now, as a FIT4MOM Instructor, I can live out my passion by helping moms experience fitness, fun for them and their babies, and a community of others going through the same challenges, all with my daughter in tow.

My fitness experience includes running over 16 races ranging in distance from half-marathon to 5k; placing in the top 10 females on Northern Trust’s Corporate Challenge team; over 20 years attending yoga, spinning and various fitness classes; and over 5 years playing on softball teams.
