Where are you from and where did you grow up?

I am from Decatur, AL which is also where I grew up! Go Raiders!

What brought you to Auburn/Birmingham and what do you do here outside of True40?

My husband sells medical devices and equipment and that is what initially brought us back to Auburn. I also teach at Auburn High School, as a special education resource teacher and work with cheerleaders at the high school and university level!

What is the best piece of advice you’ve ever been given?

To breathe! I can often be an impulsive person and a busy person, so remembering to slow down and breath is often hard for me.

How do you love your body and stay true to you?

I feel like I am constantly learning how to love my body as I get older and my activities and life brings about changes. I stay true to myself by letting my body rest when needed, and trying to maintain a balanced diet.

Why would you tell someone to try True40?

I would encourage someone to try True40 because of how great it is for all levels. Not only is it accessible but it is challenging, and it changes constantly.

What are you deathly afraid of?

Getting stuck in a small space.

What is one item on your bucket list?

To travel to Europe

What is one thing most people don’t know about you?

My husband says I eat faster than Jeff Gordon drives 😂
