A Brief History...
 I was born in Honolulu Hawaii, my middle name is Lehua which means Flower of the Islands in Hawaiian. I moved to California when I was 5 and went on to study at Santa Barbara Ballet Company and was a professional ballet dancer for 6 years. Although I have been very conscious of my health my whole life, this experience really ingrained in me the habits for a healthy lifestyle.
 
 After leaving the Santa Barbara Ballet Company, I decided to go on to Santa Barbara City College to pursue my Licensed Vocational Nurse (LVN) degree. The next 10 years I worked as a emergency room nurse and an in home nurse. From there I decided to go back to school to pursue my passion, exercise science. After obtaining my Bachelors of Science degree I was hired on as the Aquatics Director for the YMCA in Phoenix, AZ.
 
 All of these experiences have brought me to where I am today, and attaining my lifelong dream of opening up my own training studio.
 
I began my business back in 2004 and have enjoyed working with people and helping them reach their goals. Your success is important to me, I am not just a your coach I am your friend.
