I have a lot of interests and hobbies... maybe bordering too many. At the age I was thinking about going to college, I had no idea what I wanted. No one passion held my interest strongly enough to run with it to see where it led. So instead, I tried running with a few.

After high school, I obtained my RYT 200hr from Kripalu Center of Yoga & Health in Massachusetts. While there, I applied to attend an intensive photography course at Rocky Mountain School of Photography in Montana. It was here that I began to grow into my passions and learn how to make money doing them. But after being landlocked for a couple years, I knew I needed a change. I wanted to combine my passions for the ocean and photography, so I became a NAUI Dive Master in Belgium where I trained with a focus on underwater photography.

As beautiful as the North Sea is to dive, the water was a bit too cold for my liking and so I found myself moving to Curaçao, where I worked as an underwater photographer and videographer. It was also there that I serendipitously met my husband. In 2016, I moved in with him in Louisiana, where I became certified as a NAUI Dive Instructor, acquired my ACE Personal Trainer Certification & Buti Yoga Certification.

In 2018 I got married, and we dove into our shared passion of travel by embarking on a 15 month honeymoon around the world. Together we explored 17 countries, their myriad of cultures and witnessed so much beauty hand in hand with hard life realities. After all my nomad-ing around, I learned the important lesson that some passions can and are meant to be combined to fulfill a greater purpose. With Encompass Fitness, I am able to combine my experiences and passions to assist clients as they find balance in health and fitness in their lives. Join me in a class today!
