Pursue a healthy, happy lifestyle through regular exercise, mindful eating, living simply and humbly, and following your passion! I’m here to provide you with the resources to make it happen and strive to be a tangible example through my own life choices and experiences!
My husband and I traveled the world long-term (learn more about it on my About page and check out our blog to follow where our journey led us to)! Our hope is that in openly sharing our candid experiences, we can provide a window into what different places geographically, including their cultures and lifestyles, are like, and moreover, what it’s like to put the comfortable life we know in California on pause to instead live out of backpacks, traveling mostly overland, open to exploration and absorbing what we find, for the indefinite future. Whether you want to live vicariously through us because you wouldn’t dare do what we chose to, you’re looking for ideas and tips for your own future travel endeavors, you’re curious what we were up to, or a mix of all of the above, we invite you to join us virtually along the way through our photos and stories!
For me, this travel journey was also a unique opportunity to incorporate my world of fitness by experiencing various group exercise class formats and instructors in U.S. states outside of California and in countries abroad, and at times teaching as well. I feel fortunate to have had these enriching encounters with the instructors and students I met along the way, many of which I am still connected with today. I am confident these experiences have enhanced my abilities as a fitness professional long-term.
Upon returning home to Sacramento, CA, I took the leap I’d been gradually working towards for years to follow my passion and focus on my fitness industry career full-time. I worked as the Health & Wellness Program Director for the Sacramento Central YMCA in Midtown Sacramento for 2 1/2 years. I am currently prioritizing my next life adventure of motherhood as my full-time focus.
