I started my fitness journey as a four year old in gymnastics and dance.  I’ve always been involved in sports and I found the love of my life (no, not my husband, we’ll get to him later) when I started running!  I’ve been running now for over a decade, completed seven marathons including Boston (2007) and NYC (2015), and I love competition! I began competing in duathlon (run/bike/run) and triathlon in 2010 and have represented Team USA for both.

I started my writing journey around age eight, and became serious about it at age 36 when I sold my personal training studio in 2011 to stay home with my twin boys. Shortly thereafter my blog VITA – Train for Life was born. My freelance career was an obvious extension of the blog and I have never been happier.

My husband of 10 years and I like to live life big, in a quiet corner of the northeast, where we take full advantage of every season.
