I grew up in the Bay Area and graduated from San Francisco State University in 2013 with a degree in Broadcast Electronic Communication Arts. After living all over California, I now call Colorado home.
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 Sweat Experience, where we bring fitness experiences to the workplace. In addition, I’m a former columnist for Inc. Magazine, a dream gig where I write about all things entrepreneurial-related.
I am so proud to be the co-founder of monopkt., a rock climbing and apparel company. I started this venture with my husband, Nick Smith. We’re on a mission to make climbing fun!
