"Why did I become a personal trainer? After suffering through many miscarriages, I felt depressed and lost all of my self confidence. It was a terrible time. I think this is a feeling, regardless of the cause, that most women can related to at some point in their lives. Exercise helped me regain my love and confidence for my body that I had lost. My hopes is help my clients do the same."

"When I turned 50, I knew my life needed a new direction. Although I’d been physically active as a child and in my early adult years, I had spent the most recent 25 years in an office setting focused on my career and being a mom. It was time to go back to my roots…my true passion which was movement.
I began dance lessons at 7 years old and knew right away I wanted to do it the rest of my life! In high school, my “life” (outside of the dance studio) was defined by my 4 year membership in the PomPom Squad - a dance/drill team that I was co-captain of and a dance routine creator. Our team was renown in the state and being a member meant practicing all year long for hours, but it was worth it!
After high school I attended Western Michigan University on a dance scholarship and was a member of WMU’s modern dance company and the WMU Ballet Theatre, until injuries made me rethink my career path. Although I continued to dance some, and thought about opening a dance studio, I chose a business/accounting path and upon graduation moved to Chicago to work for a “Big 8” CPA firm.
Fast forward 25 years: I am finishing up my accounting career…. I’m glad to be done with the long hours sitting at a desk! Meanwhile, I had been working out by myself, was doing some random weight lifting at a local gym, and I thought my Fitbit would help that 50+ body get back to the 25 year one. I was not feeling the greatest (physically and emotionally), and then I met Evelyn and joined the Barbelle Academy.
The training, support and motivation I’ve received from Eve have changed my outlook on life. My heart is happy being back into enjoying physical movement on a regular basis, challenging myself and working out with a great group of ladies. So things have come full-circle (although movement for entertainment/dancing has changed to movement for health purposes)! And with a Certified Personal Trainer accreditation, I am able to share my skills and passion for physical fitness and health with others."
