Thank you for allowing me to share with you my journey up to this season in my life!
I've always been athletic and I discovered my love of weight training in 1994 when I was in the military. Upon my discharge from the military, I began competitive bodybuilding and entered numerous contests in the mid-1990's. I completed the first phase of my bodybuilding career by competing at the (NPC) Nationals bodybuilding championships in 1996.
In 1998, while pursuing a career in law enforcement, I became a part of the Public Service Ambassador Program (PSA Program) in Milwaukee. This was Milwaukee Downtown's Business Improvement District #21's newest program initiative designed to make downtown Milwaukee safe, clean and friendly. By God's unmerited grace and favor I was promoted to Managing Director in 1999.
In January 2000 I realized I was in way over my head, had no peace, was empty, unfulfilled and without purpose. I hit my "rock bottom" and as a result made Jesus Christ the Lord and Leader of my life and thereby became a born-again Christian! Little did I know the Lord was preparing me to one day run my own business as He taught me about servant leadership, stewardship, compassion, integrity, encouragement..and LOTs more!
After 8 years in this position, the Lord called me to leave the Ambassador Program to pursue the call to help others achieve a healthy, well balanced lifestyle through exercise and meal planning. In 2007, New Creation Personal Training was born!
My current schedule keeps me very busy, but I love spending quiet time in my back yard reading, taking my Yorkie (Hugo) on hikes at the state parks, and spending time with my wonderful family and friends!

Behold, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs forth; do you not perceive and know it and will you not give heed to it? I will even make a way in the wilderness and rivers in the desert."
