I've been at Storms Fitness for 8+ years and have conducted 1,000's of fitness classes. I have recently added Personal Training to the list. My clients of all ages (18 to 88) and fitness levels have come to expect the following from my Personal Training sessions and follow-up:
POSITIVELY MOTIVATIONAL: You will be surprised how much fun you can have while working out!
GOAL ORIENTED: Your goals are my goals!
COMMITTED TO VARIETY: I will keep you interested by tapping into a vast array of exercises!
I have a limited number of sessions available and would love to talk to you about your unique fitness goals and how we can work together to achieve them!
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!
Fitness and health has been a cornerstone of my personal life since I was young. I grew up in a very active household where my sisters and I were encouraged to take on hobbies that had us outside and moving.
After starting college and moving to Vermont, I quickly found a passion for lifting and strength training. I have always loved pushing my body to perform at a high level and strength training gave me that outlet. Knowing that a healthy diet would only add to my fitness level and improve my performance, I took on a biology major and learned the finer details of proper nutrition as well as human anatomy and the science of movement.
For the last five years, I have developed a powerful strength training routine; aimed at muscle development and toning. I enjoy working with clients who are looking to make lifestyle changes to improve their overall health and fitness. I aim to build training routines that build strength and change fat to muscle body ratios for clients at any level of fitness; whether just starting out or a longtime gym goer looking for a new routine. I can also offer nutritional advice to support the training and help you work towards your fitness performance and healthy lifestyle goals.

“This is the only body we get, so we need to keep it tuned up to last us for the long haul. Whether you want to take your strength and fitness to the next level, or you are just starting out, I can help you get there with smart training, and plenty of encouragement!”
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.

MA, NASM Certified Trainer
I am a New Hampshire native and a psychologist in training with a combined interest in mental and physical well-being. I have over 5 years of experience in helping individuals set and meet goals that enhance their quality of life. I believe that any change in behavior, in order to succeed, must be motivated by self-compassion rather than self-criticism. I have a commitment to help clients to identify goals, discover internal sources of perseverance, and build skills to promote lasting change.
I am happy to work with clients who have special concerns related to injuries, age, weight, as well as individuals who just want to practice self-care or reach new fitness milestones.
For my own fitness, I enjoy lifting, body weight exercises, and have a complicated love/hate relationship with running.
