Sports and fitness have been a constant in my life, from playing multiple sports to teaching group exercise classes. After finishing my Business degree (B.B.A) from the University of Kentucky, I moved to Houston for law school. After receiving my Juris Doctorate (J.D.) from South Texas College of Law, I realized that my true passion was elsewhere and began to dedicate learning all I could about biomechanics, engineering, anatomy and joint structure. In 1997, I started training directly at the Resistance Training Specialist Program (RTS®) in Oklahoma City with Tom Purvis, and began training in Muscle Activation Techniques (MAT®) with Greg Roskopf in 2002. Both programs have been foundational to my practice, and my continuation with both and my desire to learn more means you can expect nothing but the best from me.
I worked at several high end studios, as well as the Houstonian Club for many years before starting my own concept: Sculpt Fitness Studios. At one point, I had three locations in the River Oaks and Tanglewood areas of Houston, Texas. After evolving Sculpt Fitness for over 15 years, I decided it was time to simplify life and return to my southern roots. I developed Body Architecture Fitness in late 2019, so that I could focus solely on offering Muscle Activation Techniques, Personal Training, and Pilates Reformer to the Franklin and the greater Nashville area. Moving to a one on one model allows me to offer a level of quality most have never experienced before in fitness. My thirst for knowledge is constant, and I am always striving to expand my skillsets. I am excited to be the first to introduce MAT® to Tennessee, as well as Isophit™. I tell most people that they simply have to experience them for themselves to fully understand the difference. I love educating clients on safer and more effective ways of training for life-long results. I want everyone to enjoy their workouts, and leave the studio feeling better than when they walked in. In order to get sustainable results for life, the methods must be sustainable.
In my spare time, you might find me spending time with my two dogs, riding my bike, anything active outdoors, watching most sports, playing tennis, and listening to music. I am looking forward to getting reacquainted with Tennessee after such a long absence, as I have always considered it my home.
