Since my dad was the pee wee wrestling coach, I spent a lot of time in the wrestling room growing up. I started coaching wrestling right out of high school, and have been a coach ever since. I started martial arts in Jeet Kune Do, where I was greatly impacted by the martial arts philosophy of Bruce Lee. I quickly gravitated to the grappling side and began studying Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. Earning my black belt from Carlson Gracie Jr. was one of the most difficult, and most rewarding journeys of my life. I have a passion for coaching, and I aim to create a supportive, yet challenging environment in my classes. I am striving to increase grit in my students, and improve my community through my passion.
“The successful warrior is the average man, with laser-like focus.” -Bruce Lee
I grew up fighting since the age of 9 years old in a small Panhandle Texas town. I was a shy timid girl who thought karate looked fun and like something I wanted to be apart of. 15 years later I’ve traveled the world to compete 4 times as well as competed in several states (China, Turkey, Barbados, Bermuda, Texas, Oklahoma, New Mexico, Florida and more). I earned a black belt in MMA and currently working to earn another black belt in BJJ. My mission is to bring others to live into their greatness through martial arts and fitness. I love working with the youth of the community to inspire each student to make a positive impact on the world around them big or small. We all matter, and I aim to help my students live a life they love, and love the life they live. My classes will push you mentally, physically, emotionally, and even spiritually. We will laugh and create big lives together!

Watch your words, for they become actions.
Watch your actions, for they become habits.
Watch your habits, for they become character.
Watch your character, for it becomes your destiny.”
I’ve been teaching yoga for five years. I am a woman of many passions, one of those empowering women to love themselves right now, here, and in every moment. I love teaching and bringing people together through my classes. I aim to create a positive female community that supports another verses competing against each other to look good. In my classes I will help you build your core muscles in a way you will SEE the results, create strength in flexibility, and of course make you laugh your ass off.
“Follow your Bliss.”
