Owner, Female Weight Loss Specialist / Personal Trainer / Health and Fitness Coach

Here at You Be Fit, we help people take the confusion out of better health, exercise, and nutrition which is the starting point to success!

“There is so much misinformation out there about diet, exercise, and nutrition, people get so confused and don’t know what to do.  So we start,  get overwhelmed, get discouraged and then stop. What we do at You-Be-Fit is help you understand the basics of diet, exercise, and nutrition, position you closer to your personal goals, provide direction, support, and accountability and establish a game plan for you that will last a lifetime instead of a moment in time.”

Being a former U.S. Army Master Fitness Trainer, Personal Trainer, Certified Fitness Nutritionist (CFN) and a Health & Fitness Consultant, I have a passion for helping people in the areas of wellness, exercise, and fitness.  It’s important we understand that even if you pile on the fruits and vegetables, drink plenty of juice and milk, and eat fish a couple of times a week, we may not be getting all the nutrients we need. We need help to fill the gap between what’s in the food we eat and the nutrition our body needs for optimum health and to help us avoid chronic conditions and diseases down the road. The problem is that most people don’t eat right or exercise properly. So I decided to take matters into my own hands and help people who want better health, walk through the nutritional maze and make it safely to the other side!
