Hometown: Oelwein, Iowa
First job: Dishwasher at Two Brothers Restaurant in Oelwein, Iowa.
Favorite ways to spend your free time in IA: Exploring new local food and drink options.
Your biggest accomplishment and why: Creating a business from the (literal) ground up. Tire Trained started as a fun idea in my backyard and has grown to a 3,000-sq.-ft. private training studio and another 3,000-sq.-ft. group training studio with 200-plus members.
The biggest obstacle you overcame: My own mindset. The biggest thing I have learned along the way is that if you are not making the progress you would like to, you are the one holding yourself back. Putting mindset first has changed my life.
Someone who inspires you and why: The women who walk through the doors at Tire Trained. I am especially inspired by those who come in feeling intimidated and with the assumption that they cannot do something hard like the workouts here. EVERY SINGLE TIME they show themselves that they CAN do hard things, and they overcome that intimidation. Watching these women step into their power every day inspires me the most!
Advice to someone pursuing a career path in what you do: Know your WHAT and know your WHY. Be very, very clear on these things and the HOW will play out better than you could ever dream.
Favorite quote: “Create the highest, grandest vision possible for your life because you become what you believe.” –Oprah
Something someone would be surprised to learn about you: I love solitude. As much as I love people and am around them all the time, I absolutely love being alone. I have learned so much about myself by honoring my time alone. Solitude allows me to reflect, create and maintain balance in my life.
What makes someone fabulous: Authenticity. One can truly live in alignment with their purpose and be the most fabulous version of themselves when they are being authentic. Do not be afraid to let people know who you truly are.
