I am a lifestyle and nutrition coach and a personal trainer. I am originally from Sofia, the capital of Bulgaria (think Eastern Europe), but I have lived in San Diego, California since 2007. I am also a mom, a daughter, a sister and a co-parent. If I had to sum up my life purpose in one sentence, it would be, “I am a teacher.” I love learning, and I enjoy sharing knowledge, wisdom, and experience.
My love for fitness and curiosity about nutrition started when I was a teenager. I struggled with weight after I stopped competitive skiing in high school, so I started learning how to exercise in the gym and eat healthily. I loved seeing how my body changed and how my energy and happiness were better than ever. My friends and classmates were inspired how I changed my life and how fitness became my lifestyle.
I decided to pursue an education in Exercise Science because I was an athlete growing up and I had just fallen in love with fitness. I liked learning about the human body and how it functions, moves, and performs, but most of all I enjoyed learning how to ignite the fire in others so they could fall in love with fitness as well.
