Describe your business. Did you find it, or did it find you?
For the last eight years I’ve been a personal trainer (after finishing my degree on a full-ride sports scholarship). It found me when I was about six years old, which is when I fell in love with sports and fitness.
How are you involved with both the community and your customer?
I try to get involved with any charity event I can fit into my schedule. I’ve done mud runs, foam runs, Tough Mudders, the Hot Pink Fun Run (a breast cancer fundraiser), and the Run to Feed the Hungry, to name a few.
What life accomplishments are you most proud of?
Getting a full athletic scholarship to a division one school, and being able to play soccer with some of the best players in the world.
What’s your biggest job perk?
I love that I’m able to really get to know my clients; seeing them three times a week makes them part of my extended family.
Where do you and your family go locally to have fun?
We like to pack a picnic and go on a bike ride through Folsom, or take a hike to one of the many nearby waterfalls.
If you could meet someone living or dead, who would it be and why?
Ellen DeGeneres—she’s a strong, independent and successful woman who stands up for what she believes in and helps people through laughter.
What’s your favorite local event that you go to?
I love to do charity runs for cancer; losing my mom to cancer this year has made those events even more important.
And finally, customer service is…?
Listening to my clients and their needs, then trying to fulfill those needs with my education and skills in a fun and motivating way.
