I’m a wife and mom of 3 kids, 3 cats, and 2 dogs. We have lived in Waller for 2 years and love the slower pace of life out in the country. I have been dancing since I was a little girl. Attended Sam Houston State University as a Dance Major to receive my Bachelor of Arts in Dance. I then went on to be a dance teacher and drill team director for 13 years, in the Houston Area. In 2020, I resigned from education to be a SAHM for my kids when the pandemic shut us down. During that time, I began my own health and wellness journey that led me to a new found passion in the health and wellness space, as a Wellness Coach. In April of 2023 I started my own business, HMCoaching. I help busy mamas create space in their busy schedules to find their confidence again and build their ideal bodies from the inside-out! My two daughters are on the Waller Competitive Cheer Squad - Barbie Bulldogs and my son is obsessed with dinosaurs! I love to read, garden, workout, relax with my cats and dogs, and watch my fave tv rerun shows! I’m also on the Social Committee for my community, so planning events and bringing people together in a positive way is my jam!!
