About me

Industry Sports or Recreation
Occupation Fitness Professional
Location Kailua, HI, United States
Introduction I grew up as an active child, in gymnastics then competitive cheerleading, including a National Championship at NC State University. After college, running became my passion, starting with short races, progressing to marathons and also triathlons. In 2006 I assisted in coaching 'Running For Women' at Fleet Feet Kailua, HI. Also in 2006 my husband and I competed in two tandem surfing championships. That came to a halt when I got pregnant with Quade (born Jan 2010) and then Zoe (born Nov 2011). During both pregnancies I remained active but found other outlets for exercise. Thanks to continually staying active, I bounced right back into running shape and completed half marathons in Apr 2011 and Sept 2012. I continue taking courses to stay current with the latest fitness developments. I created LAVAFIT in 2010 to encourage and support a healthy lifestyle for all women. As a military wife, I understand the importance of balance, friendships and not only physical but mental health too! CERTIFICATIONS: Precision Nutrition Level 1 Certified (Pn1).
