BIO: I am a highly motivated entrepreneur and a health advocate. I have been self employed since I was 17 and working in a family business has instilled some very strong work ethics which carries over into everything I do. God gives everyone a gift. It is just a matter of being able to recognize your gift and applying it. Being a personal trainer has enabled me to change people's lives by teaching, motivating and inspiring others by living a healthy and fit lifestyle.
