 "I believe that as an owner of a successful fitness facility you must think of it as your members' gym and not one of your own.  It is my responsibility to provide LEAP's members with whatever support they may need; the top fitness professionals in the industry, the most effective  programming and highest quality equipment, and a uniquely beautiful environment that gets you excited to come and train.  I fully intend on fulfilling that responsibility!"

"Growing up a competitive swimmer and water polo player, I learned what it meant to work hard, practice discipline, and be a leader. However, the most important thing I learned was how great living an active lifestyle made me feel. Realizing this as a young athlete, I became dedicated to helping others see their potential and reach their goals. With a background in swim instruction, six years of yoga studies, marathon training, group fitness coaching and 1-on-1 personal training, I truly believe that movement is medicine. Physical activity has become my therapy and I look forward to sharing that with you!"
