Where are you from?
I was born and raised in Soho, New York City. After a few years living in hawaii and almost 9 years in La...Im back baby!
After living in NYC my whole life I found myself living a super unhealthy lifestyle, physically and mentally. I took a leap of faith and went to volunteer doing agriculture work/ farming in Hawaii- I was supposed to stay for 2 months and ended up staying for over two years! While I was there I replaced my unhealthy coping mechanisms with movement and nutrition. Being immersed in nature can really heal and show you all the best sides of yourself. After coming home I moved to LA on a whim (seriously i was cold..) I became certified in Yoga Barre but was still looking for more. Thats when I found the lagree method, it was the first thing that challenged me physically and mentally AND produced the results I wasn't getting with any other method. I worked my butt off and became the lead teacher of the top Lagree studio in LA (The Studio MDR) I loved every minute of my job but after covid hit I really saw how much I needed to be back home and around my family- so I made the choice to come back to where it all began. I also enrolled in the Integrative nutrition school to become certified as a holistic health coach.
Once in New York I knew there was only one studio I could ever devote myself to - FORM 50 - and the universe aligned to make it all happen.
After years of growth I feel like me and NYC are ready to be a force to be reckoned with!
Who’s in heavy rotation on your playlist?
I love a little bit of everything from Saint Jhn, Kanye West and Drake when I am working out- (I love me a good remix!)To Sade, Billie Eilish and Cold War Kids when Im just chilling- But really there can be only one queen of the playlist world and thats Miss Britney Spears!
Who’s your spirit animal?
Definitely a little dog. Loyal to a fault, just wants to be around people they love, protective and has zero awareness as to how small they are.
Why coach at FORM50?
The method speaks for itself, its not only intense- its highly effective (I'm a virgo ya'll!) I've been through the ringer with some major injuries/ surgeries over the years and because of FORM I havent had to give up the intensity that I crave. I want to share that with clients who may have had similar experiences - Nothing is worse than being limited by a new or chronic injury that takes away doing the things that you love- and with FORM it doesn't have to! If that wasn't reason enough - it's the vibe. The coaches and clients create an atmosphere that brought me back to New York City in the first place- that sense of community, people having each others backs and celebrating strong AF women! The Form Fam just gets it.
What’s your go-to place in the ‘hood to hang out?
Im pretty new to the Astoria scene - but I always try to be outside as much as possible and I'm really digging Astoria park - I walk around listening to music or podcasts, hang with my dogs Harley and Aurora and people watch.
What’s your favorite healthy snack?
As a vegan and all around healthy food nut I am really adamant about putting quality whole ingredients into my body- That's why my go to dessert is Giselle's Vegan Kitchen - I have never tasted anything so good in my life. I love their Protein Bar and Chocolate Chip Cookies! I also am obsessed with nut butter and Have 45 jars. My favorites are Groundup PDX (Hazelnut and their limited edition waffle cone) and Elizabeth Eats Good (birthday cake flavor)
