Over 20 years ago  I made the life choice to become physically fit and stay healthy.  I had been in and out of gyms during those 20 years and it was at FitWorks where I met Robin, a group fitness instructor who inspired me to teach fitness classes and become a Certified Personal Trainer.

In 2010 Robin opened her own studio. I started my fitness career teaching fitness classes at Robin’s studio. I became certified to teach a “Group Power” weight class and taught classes for 3 years at her studio.  At that point I decided I wanted to take it a step further and help people on a 1-on-1 basis. I become a Certified Personal Trainer.

While working as a Certified personal Trainer at Anytime Fitness the toll was being taken on my dog, Charlie.  I was coming home from a full-time job just to turn around and leave him again to go to my personal training commitment.  I was wishing there was a way I could include him with my fitness routine, then I found Thank Dog!®.  I attended classes in Eastlake, OH. with Heidi Braun, owner of NEO Thank Dog.  At that moment I knew I wanted to start a Thank Dog!® of my own.

I moved from Eastlake, OH to Amherst, OH and started Thank Dog Fit in 2016.
