An avid runner for many years, she has competed in numerous events including 5k, 10k, and Half Marathons…her favorite being the Rock-n-Roll Half Marathon in Chicago! In 2008 she switched gears from her marketing background, and became an ACE Certified Personal Trainer, a lifelong goal.

Always on the lookout for her next challenge, she settled in to her new home at Core Changes with Carey, and added Group Fitness to her repotoire.
