Founder and CEO of Atvolve Wellness
I am the CEO and founder of Atvolve Wellness, a mind and movement-centered wellness company. (I believe) if you can prove to yourself that you can physically evolve for the better, you open your mind to how the rest of your life can positively change too.
My journey began teaching group fitness classes while studying Kinesiology and running marathons. I learned very quickly my love for working with groups, especially the thrill in losing my voice over the microphone and began managing gyms and teaching classes at multiple Kosama Total Body Transformation locations across Iowa. This path cartwheeled into the corporate wellness arena, designing health programs for T. Rowe Price and coaching marathon beginners in Colorado.
Soon after came personal training, getting up close and personal with people was the natural next step. Here I got a taste of what behavior change is truly about and how each person can be extremely unique and of course awesome in their own ways. I trained clients at a well known corporate gym in Hollywood, 24 Hour Fitness, before going private and starting my own health coaching business. At the time, I went by Rhythm & Grit, but a handful of years later, after realizing absolutely no one could spell ‘Rhythm’, I re-named to Atvolve Wellness.
Coming full circle, we have expanded into office wellness and have a wonderful team of practitioners offering mind and movement-centered services to our corporate clients here in Los Angeles. To stay curious and never stop learning, that’s always my goal. I spend everyday collaborating, coaching, and learning from others to continue guiding people in the direction of their greatness.
