Greetings! I began my fitness career later in life, shortly after running my first marathon at age 40. Up until then I was in the field of finance and accounting, and an involved community member raising my three children. I had been active my entire life, playing soccer, lacrosse, tennis, swimming and skiing so moving into the field of fitness training was a natural transition.
I developed a passion for helping others reach their fitness goals after I began training other runners for races, from 5k’s to marathons. In 2005, I became a Certified Personal Trainer and worked in a brand new, state of the art, fitness facility in Memphis, TN. It was there that my love for supporting, teaching and guiding clients of all ages and fitness levels was solidified. In 2006, I became a Certified Group Fitness Instructor and brought my commitment and enthusiasm to the group fitness arena. I then became a certified Les Mills’ Instructor in Body Pump in 2007. I currently teach indoor cycling, Pilates/core and instruct at various locations in the Concord area.
As a wellness and fitness coach, I enjoy creating plans for both individuals and small groups, working hard to make you, the client, feel safe, successful and able to pursue the activities you enjoy. My goal is to work with what you love to do, encourage you to try new activities, and strengthen you physically, mentally and emotionally enabling you to reach your goals.
I work with all ages and fitness levels-from the individual coming back from a fitness hiatus or injury, to a competitive or recreational athlete who has specific goals in mind, to a young adult looking for support to develop healthy fitness habits.
Over the past 9 years, I have continued to pursue my avocation of running by completing 19 marathons and numerous other races, including 6 triathlons. I have coached and continue to officiate soccer, lacrosse and field hockey. I look forward to working with members here at Storms and am happy to answer any questions you may have!

I struggled with health
problems as a child, which ultimately led me to embrace fitness at a very young
age. I quickly recognized the importance of taking care of the body by keeping
it strong, flexible and healthy.
Growing up in Brazil, I trained in a variety of forms of
martial arts, which later led to a passion for parkour, which I practiced
around my city of Belo Horizonte.
I have experience working
with clients of all ages and fitness levels. Being a trainer is incredibly
rewarding, and my favorite part of training is seeing people reach fitness
goals they never thought possible.
