Areas of Focus:

My life has guided me to numerous opportunities of which I am eternally grateful.  As an entrepreneur / counselor / personal trainer, I am able to share my passions and live my “dream job” each and every day.  I am a people person and am eager to help those in need.

As a personal trainer, I’ve been drawn to helping women achieve a healthier outlook on life.  I am a true believer in living a flexible lifestyle in every way possible.


I love to help my clients get started with understanding nutrition and exercise and how to incorporate both into their lives in a way that fits for them.  I do not believe in a “one size fits all” approach, and I like to be creative with new ways to help my clients succeed.




Alissa has been in the mental health field for 5 years, and has earned her certification in Applied Counseling. Alissa has received relevant training such as non-violent crisis intervention, current first aid and CPR, supervisory CORE training, suicide intervention, mental health and eating disorders. Alissa has over 8 years in the customer service field within the financial industry.
Alissa’s personal history with mental health issues has led her to the helping field, including overcoming an eating disorder, and managing anxiety. When Alissa was facing these issues head on, she was given a choice of pharmaceutical drugs to “cure” her, or to take more of a natural path including counseling, proper nutrition and supplementation, and daily fitness. Alissa chose the path of health and wellness through a natural approach, which has led her to a fulfilling life, encompassed around proper nutrition, and exercise for the body and mind.
Incorporating personal life experiences, along with counselling education, Alissa will help others discover that a healthy body can be as simple as taking the first step in confronting mental health issues, and baby steps to integrate a well-rounded relationship with diet, health, and fitness. Alissa has been personally involved in the fitness industry, to promote her own positive approach towards fitness goals in health and wellness. Alissa has completed the prestigious international personal training certification, ISSA Sports Sciences Personal Training Program.
