- Official Fitness Advisor for Fox 21 News, Colorado Springs
I am a rare Colorado native. Born and raised in Boulder Colorado, I moved to Colorado Springs in 2011. I am an avid mountain biker, dog lover and I am happiest in the outdoors. As a national level collegiate swimmer, I was introduced to the importance of nutrition. Over the course of my career I have worked as a public health programmer for at-risk teens, a math teacher in Harrison District 2 and now as a certified personal trainer and nutrition counselor–in each position, I’ve been blessed to pursue my passion and mission to educate and empower both myself and others to live well and fully. I started my self-education in nutrition and exercise in 2011 when I battled and overcame an eating disorder and self-image issues that arose after college graduation. My interest in gut health specifically started in 2015 when I dealt with my own serious GI issues including IBS. These experiences only deepened my interest in wellness and are the reasons that I started my own wellness practice in 2016 and was asked, in 2018, to be Fox 21’s, official fitness expert. I believe deeply in the power of a team approach. That is why I am so excited to partner with Dr. Jennifer Horton, DO to educate and empower you, our clients, to improve your overall wellness, achieve improved gut health, balanced hormones, age gracefully and to help you feel connected to and cared for by your medical team. I’m looking forward to connecting with you and to being your partner in your journey to wellness.
