I grew up playing multiple sports from soccer to running track, but had to hang up the jersey and put my athletic ambitions on hold due to college commitments. Within my first year, I began gaining weight, but it was not the good kind of weight, and decided to hire a personal trainer. This is when I was first introduced to lifting and fell in love with strength training. Given all the benefits of weight lifting, I loved the confidence I felt in all areas of my life. I pursued my personal training career at just 19 years old and in 2020, I launched Aspire Higher Training. I have since helped coach women in strength training, endurance training, nutrition and injury prevention. I am now devoted to helping women gain confidence through strength, improve their overall performance and promote longevity in their training program. This helps my clients stay fully engaged, enjoy the process and above all stay injury free.
