Meet the Team!


I’ve been an athlete my entire life. I played softball for four years of high school and in college. I majored in Sports Management with an Exercise Science minor. My internship was with the University of Iowa and worked with the Event Management staff for two years after college. I have certifications as a Lifeguard, in First Aid & CPR, and coaching authorization.
I enjoy training intervals, strength & balance, kickboxing, and weight training. I coached high school softball for 4 years after college. Now with four kids of my own I’m excited to watch them grow and learn to be strong and work hard. Body Shop Fitness is a family to our family too! I believe in “Hard work beats talent when talent refuses to work hard!”


I was first introduced to kickboxing style workouts while attending Iowa State University where I received my B.S. degree in Architecture. After graduation, my career moved Brock and I to the Des Moines/Pella area, which made Prairie City a perfect central location for our home. I was very excited to find an active fitness Community and a place for me to continue my love of kickboxing. 

In 2018, I received my group exercise training certification through NETA. I am thankful to be a part of Body Shop Fitness and have the ability to give back to our Community! Along with this adventure, I look forward to becoming an even stronger, healthier and active role model for my two young children Wyndam and Rowyn! 


I’ve been in the fitness industry for over 10 years.  I really started to find a love for fitness at Simpson College where I graduated with a degree in exercise science.  In 2009, I started working at the Wellmark Well for Life Center and later became a group exercise instructor and personal trainer there.  While working at Wellmark I became a NETA certified personal trainer and group exercise instructor.

I have enjoyed training fitness classes in spin, strength, intervals, boot camps, kickboxing, basics, and water aerobics. In 2013, I started working as a science teacher in the PCM school district.  I am so grateful to be able to continue working in the fitness industry as a part of Body Shop Fitness even though it is no longer my full time job.
