  1. Why Artemis? I love the idea of women coming to a place because they have a common interest, common desire and common need.  I know that Artemis is place where needs are met in a real, meaningful way and where women feel heard and confident.  Connections are hard to make in our society, we spend a lot of time alone.  I hope that Artemis will be a place where women can meet other like-minded women, challenge themselves, and grow and go back out into the world feeling better about themselves.
  2. My Favorite Exercise is the plank.
  3. My Least Favorite Exercise is burpees!
  4. What makes me smile? Adults willing to be silly, mad skillz and goofy movies, laughing kids.
  5. While not at Artemis, I'm with my family, skiing, reading, gardening, playing outside.

  1. Why Artemis? I am all for women strength training and Artemis provides an environment where women can come lift some heavy things without intimidation. Also, the battling ropes!
  2. My favorite exercise is... Anything back-related: rows, inverted rows, chin ups, deadlifts, etc. A strong back is so important for posture, injury prevention and looking good in a sleeveless dress!
  3. My least favorite exercise ...It is shameful as a trainer to say this, but I always dread push-ups (remember, I'm a back girl). I've really been working on my push-up form and it has been tough but my shoulders thank me.
  4. What makes me smile? Watching my dogs stick their heads out the window of the moving car. Pure joy!
  5. When I'm not at Artemis:  I'm a bit of a fitness junky so I'm always reading about fitness and nutrition. I may be spotted doing barbell squats in the basement or weeding our vegetable garden. In the winter, I'll be on the hill skiing or riding...my nickname is Snow Bunny after all!

  1. Why Artemis? Strength training has added to my life in so many ways— it has improved my confidence, my perception of myself and my body, my general attitude, and my ability to apply myself at my desk job. I love Artemis because it is a positive, nonjudgmental community of women who develop strength together, support each other, connect with each other, and have a good time. The strength built at Artemis can help us face the physical and mental obstacles of everyday life a little more gracefully, and I love that!
  2. My favorite exercise is pull ups!
  3. My least favorite exercise is jump lunges.
  4. What makes me smile? Random acts of kindness, dancing like a lunatic, fresh produce, chihuahuas, watching clients and friends make progress, summer rainstorms, and the list goes on...
  5. When I'm not at Artemis, I'm earning my M.S. in Geology at the University of Vermont, teaching undergraduate geology labs, cross-country skiing, jogging by the lake, playing clarinet, and cooking up healthy dishes.
