I’m creative at heart. Throughout my life I’ve always been drawn toward the arts, be it drawing, photography, fashion or writing – I feel my most original self when expressing myself creatively. I’m passionate. Chances are you won’t find me committing to something if I don’t feel it in my heart. I’m an all-or-nothing kind of girl and give 110% to everything I do. I’m the outdoorsy type. I grab any chance to soak up the sunshine. In my free time I am always up for an adventure or hike.

How does fitness fit into your lifestyle?
Fitness is my therapy. A good gym session or boxing class is the only thing I need after a long day of work. I’m really just your everyday girl who loves the feeling of moving her body. Fitness has taught me some of my most valuable lessons in life. The discipline to show up and try, even on the days when you don’t feel like it. The patience of understanding that things might not always go to plan. Lastly, the importance of committing to yourself. We spend so much of our energy toward balancing work, family and relationships. The power of taking one hour to do something simply for you is invaluable. That one hour has the ability to show you your strength, your worth and the love you so deservingly owe yourself.
What are your personal fitness goals?
My fitness goals, much like my reason for entering the Biogen Face of Fitness, have drastically changed over time. I think many of us fall victim to chasing an aesthetic goal – I was no different. However, I have slowly transitioned to an understanding of what is truly healthy for my body and my mind. I am in a race. But my only competitor is myself and it’s a lot more like a marathon than a sprint. I look to fitness for slow but progressive improvement and generally base my milestones on strength and physicality rather than measurements and scales. I find joy in seeing my body becoming capable of doing the things I didn’t think it could before. At the end of the day, I am only trying to be a stronger and happier version of the person I was yesterday.
