Born and raised in the heart of concords south end, I am lucky enough to have had a village to grow up with surrounded by many cousins and family. Having been active in our communities sports teams up until I graduated from high school I loved nothing more than the small town competitive energy and all it entails.

After graduating from college I moved to Charleston, South Carolina drawn by the sun, beauty and “Southern hospitality “ where I was hoping I’d find the same feeling in my heart as our Concord community but to my surprise it just wasn’t the same. I found my way back home 7 months later to be with a guy I loved and my family and friends I so dearly missed.

When Strive arrived in our community several friends and I were anticipating the opening as Concord had nothing this progressive and innovative. I was instantly hooked on the atmosphere where my love of music and fitness could coexist. The vibes I felt and the community it shared is what made me continue coming back for more. My hope for you all is that you too feel the same when you walk out those doors.


What are you striving for? 

I’m striving for individuals to become the best version of themselves. I want them feeling stronger than when they walked in.
And let’s be honest, I’m also striving to have Carrie Underwood’s legs!

What is a quote you live by?  “If you want to lift yourself up, lift up someone else. “

What is something your riders may not know about you? 

My dream is to be a back up dancer for someone famous! But for now you can catch me moving and grooving on that bike
