Hometown: Sac <3

Favorite Sactown Hangout? Kru! It’s a neighborhood fav for sure! Whether it’s for a quick drink at the bar, late night bites or a nice Omakase dinner- it’s a full experience.

Favorite Quote: “I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel” – Maya Angelou

What is one goal that you’re currently working on? Setting time aside (in advance) for vacation and travel! I am terrible at “unplugging”.

What do you want to be when you grow up? I’m blessed to be working my dream job(s), so I will take this a bit deeper; I want to be a person that has mastered empathy, tolerance, and understanding.

Three things you can’t live without: My family, travel, and a good mani/pedi.

Beach, Mountains, or Big City, and why? Big City without a doubt. I remember the first time I visited New York for work, I thought to myself this is the vibe and energy I thrive off of. I just love the city skyline – it does something to my soul.

Favorite guilty pleasure: A fresh batch of Betty Crocker brownies with a frozen glass of Crystal milk (has to be Crystal and 2%).

Describe the music in your class: Fire! I want my songs to be felt in your core! New and classic beats all mixed together.

If you could meet three people dead or alive, who would it be? Mother Teresa, Princess Diana, and the Dalai Lama.

Who has influenced you the most? My mom. Hands down the most influential person in my life for more reasons than I can even put into words.

What is something that you think everyone should do at least once in their life? Visit India.

Who are your top 3 musical artists of all time? Michael Jackson, Justin Timberlake, and Aaliyah.

Pick a Brad: Pitt, Cooper, or Paisley? Cooper.

Pick a Jen: Lopez, Aniston, Lawernce? Lopez, duh! She had me at Selena.

Your class in 1 sentence: I want you to clip in and commit to yourself. Commit to feeling alive. You are going to sweat, you are going to push yourself and most importantly you are going to feel really freaking good doing it. My goal is to allow everyone an opportunity to let go for 45 minutes and just riiiide.

Why TEAMride? I moved back to Sacramento after being in San Francisco for a few years and immediately felt this sense of community that I so badly wanted to be a part of. TEAMride felt like home. It didn’t feel like coming to any other gym or fitness class. It felt like I was coming to a place where I was guaranteed a killer workout alongside some really amazing people. I tell people that TEAMride is contagious – once you start coming, you won’t want to stop.

How do you want to feel at 100 years old? At ease. A peace knowing I did everything I could to live the most beautiful and meaningful life.

What’s the most useful thing you own? My Doterra Oil Diffuser. It’s a game changer.

If you were a character added to a TV show, which show would you join? DO NOT JUDGE ME… I REPEAT, DO. NOT. JUDGE. ME. Keeping up with the Kardashians. K bye.

What is the best invention in the last 50 years? The iPhone

What is one thing you ALWAYS have in your fridge/pantry? Chocolate Almond Milk.

Would you rather time travel to the past of the future? Future, always for me. There is this quote I love which says “Leave who you were. Love who you are and look forward to who you will become”.
