I am a business owner, a Certified Strength & Conditioning Specialist (CSCS), and a personal trainer.

More About My Background:
I attended Northeastern University for the first two years of undergrad, where I studied Behavioral Neuroscience. However, I chose to transfer halfway through college to the University of New Hampshire, where I earned my B.S. in Biology. In 2013 I became an NASM certified personal trainer, which coincided with the start of my own business: Liveng Proof, LLC. I’ve worked as a trainer ever since.
I am now a Certified Strength & Conditioning Specialist (CSCS). I have worked with a variety of clients over the years, including those with a history of an eating disorder, exercise addiction, or just a rocky relationship with exercise/ their bodies.
And although not all my clients battle these things to the same degree, I have yet to work with someone who hasn’t struggled to some extent with their relationship with food or their body.
I absolutely love working with my clients and consider it a privilege that I get to participate in their journey to guide them in the deepening of their relationship to their body and to assist in the restoration of their relationship with movement and exercise.
