Meet Debbie

My Story
Duke University | Int

In the last 25 years, I have tuned into others through client-based services in fitness and behavioral health. I have also tuned into myself as I worked through domestic violence, sexual assault and miscarriages over the last two decades. Not to mention the usual daily stresses of life and society's expectations of me as a female and a fitness professional. I have been told by many that I am too bold, too brazen and too bossy. 

I am. And I love that about me.

I have navigated uncertain roads, explored unknown paths and hit obstacles. I have failed. I have propelled forward. I have been buried in pain.  I rose up and fell again. I have stood strong and stood my ground. Through it all, I learned how to forgive myself and love myself no matter what life was throwing at me. And, no matter what people thought of me. As long as I keep working to improve myself with an open heart and open mind, I will always love the imperfect me. 

Through fitness, faith, self-exploration and education, I discovered how

to love me and love life – inside out. 

And I want you to love yourself – inside out!
