Who Am I?
I grew up in the Bay Area and graduated from San Francisco State University in 2013 with a degree in Broadcast Electronic Communication Arts. Now, I reside in sunny Los Angeles, CA.
When I first entered college, I thought I was going to be a news anchor. I was really into journalism, but quickly learned that hard news wasn’t for me. I started to fall in love with my hobby, which was teaching fitness classes. I realized that I was my happiest when I was teaching.
Fast forward to today, I am a passionate fitness instructor having worked with global brands like Nike, Crunch Fitness, UCLA, and many more. My students inspire me to be a better person.
In 2014, I founded my own positive body image magazine called Fiterazzi Magazine. In 2015, I sold my company to Spright, a health and wellness startup, where I spent time as an Associate Editor.
Today, I’m proud to be the founder of Arrival Fitness, where we bring fitness experiences to the workplace. In addition, I’m a writer for Inc. Magazine, a dream gig where I write about all things entrepreneurial-related. Lastly, I get to explore my marketing obsession through my role as a Marketing Manager at LegalNet Inc, a litigation cost management company.
So, what do I do? I identify as a fitness expert, writer, and marketer.
The Way I See It
Sweating is a sign of hard work and persistence. The burpees are painful, but you’re going to do 100 of them anyway. You’re going to keep pushing through the pain. That, my friend, is sexy.
Fitness is my life and good company makes my world go round. I believe that everything happens for a reason and I believe that people come in and out of our lives for a reason as well. We affect others just as much as they affect us.
I believe you should always look your best because you never know who you’re going to run into (trust me on this one). I believe that you should never hold back – take risks and just go for it (double trust me on this one). Oftentimes, we waste time wondering what other people think of us, when we could have spent that time just jumping head first into the water.
Spend your life doing what you love because there’s no reason you should ever wake up dreading the day to come. Be passionate, be confident and be tenacious. Don’t forget to LIVE.
