Empowering you to take action.

I want to EMPOWER you to take action.

My mission is to help empower and support you along your journey. I do this by using the experiences I have learned from 14 years in the healthcare industry and from my own personal journey where I went from 360 pounds to Marathoner. Here are some of the ways I can help empower you along your journey: I ask you to take ownership of where you are and where you want to be. I want to educate you in ways on how you can win your battle.

My goals to achieve in the next 170 days.

In 170 days from now I will be taking part in my first Spartan Race. I recently read Joe De Sena’s book Spartan Up!: A Take-No-Prisoners Guide to Overcoming Obstacles and Achieving Peak Performance in Life. After completing the book I instantly went to and signed up for the race.

I recently crossed the five year mark of starting my journey. Every year of my journey I tried to push myself to new levels. To date the hardest thing I have ever accomplished was my first marathon and that was in 2012.

If I can be honest, after completing the marathon I was burned out. I started to lose focus and old habits started to creep back into the picture. I still had progress to make, but I became stagnant.

But that season has come to an end. The fire is reignited and I am ready to fight.

Here are my goals to achieve by March 7th 2015, the date of Spartan Sprint Race Atlanta:

  1. Lose 57 Pounds
  2. Cycle 75 miles.
  3. Be able to complete 10 unassisted pull-ups.
  4. Run a 5K in under 35 minutes.
  5. Complete my Spartan Race.

So here is to the next 170 days, it is time to do work!
