Mind Body Game. We all have a “game” to play — the mind and the body are interdependent so we have to develop them together to raise our game. It’s like a formula: Elevate the Mind, Elevate the Body to Elevate the Game.
"I get to help people. Movement is a vehicle of self expression and through coaching, I can help people create a connection with themselves, release tension and anxiety, build confidence — it can be an empowering doorway to discovery."

I am a Holistic Performance coach. I integrate, neurocognitive training with movement (strength, conditioning, mobility) and meditation, to help people elevate their performance, on the court and off.
What about your career path inspires you the most?
I think it’s two fold. First, I get to help people. Movement is a vehicle of self expression and through coaching, I can help people create a connection with themselves, release tension and anxiety, build confidence — it can be an empowering doorway to discovery.
Second, because of the broad scope of people that I’ve worked with. I’ve traveled the world and learned so much from the people, the cultures and communities I’ve been able to see and interact with.
If you could throw a parade of any caliber through your office, what type of parade would it be?
A Brazilian Carnival on the streets of Bahia….samba drums, headdresses and hips. That’s a dream. My outfit would be like a sunset with fuchsia, blood orange, tangerine and kumquat yellow sequins and feathers

Both courgeous and creative women of color. They were and still are visionaries who pursued their dreams and refused to let someone else define them. They were curious, generous and sought to help others. I hope that I can grow to into this caliber of woman.

You’re a new addition to the color trend for Fall 2020. What color would you be and why?
Turquoise… like Bahamian blue, where it’s almost translucent, bright and playful. Turquoise looks good on everybody. I think it’s versatile, compliments any color; and it’s happy.
