I was born and raised in the Mini-Cassia area. I’m married and have four children. I have always loved sports and being active. I am a 4th Degree Black Belt in Taekwondo. I was the only woman on my college Olympic Sparring Team. I studied sports medicine and went on to buy a martial arts school. While I owned LJ's Intermountain Martial Arts, I had the honor of being the Idaho State Director, USA, as well as competing in the 2004 World Championships held in Athens, Greece. I represented USA in the Women's 2nd to 4th Degree Black Belt Division and brought home two Gold Medals in Forms and Sparring as a 3rd Degree Black Belt. I am a NASM certified Personal Trainer. I love getting to know my clients and helping them on their way to a healthier lifestyle. I am also currently certified in Strong by Zumba, Zumba, Zumba Toning, and Barre. I've been involved in the Distinguished Young Women Program in the fitness portion since 2012. I am so grateful to be involved in teaching martial arts and fitness. It certainly has helped me in my life to be more positive and know that I can accomplish anything I put my mind to. The sky is the limit! I hope to help those I come in contact with to realize their potential and become a better, stronger, healthier version of themselves.
