I haven’t always had a passion for fitness. It wasn’t until fifth grade when I started middle school that I figured out for some people being healthy just doesn’t come naturally - as a 130 pound fifth grader people definitely made fun of me, but what made me want to get healthy was when my father told me that he was worried I would end up with diabetes.
That summer I spent every day playing Dance Dance Revolution on my Playstation 2; I ended up dropping weight and becoming more interested in fitness, even trying out for the school’s softball team (which I made, even though I wasn’t very good).

I graduated from New England College with a B.A. in Creative Writing a year early and immediately started working as a journalist for a small local paper in my home-state New Hampshire, but my heart wasn’t completely in it. I wanted to change people’s lives, but I figured out that journalism wasn’t the way I wanted to do it. I wanted to help change people’s lives on a more personal level.
