About Kristin

I am a 30-something wife and mom from the Jacksonville, Florida area.  I’m a Navy Brat who was born and raised in the South. I love being active, girls nights with my friends, dark chocolate, red wine, taking naps, getting lost in a great book, watching football, trying to be crafty, and most of all spoiling my babies.

I’ve been married to my husband Adam for thirteen years and we have two of the cutest kids you’ll ever see.  Braden is ten and in 5th grade, he’s super into Boy Scouts, karate, and of course video games.  Kenz is seven and loves all things girly – shoes, makeup, and stealing my bags.  She’s also a competitive gymnast.  Needless to say, they keep us BUSY!

I’m also mom to two little monsters, Rex and Macie.  Rex is a 4-year-old spoiled rotten golden retriever and Macie is a 2-year-old rescue who sort of resembles a mix between a black lab and a pit bull.  They are my babies, since my kids won’t let me call them babies anymore!

I’m a software engineer and LOVE what I do, I’m blessed to work with a wonderful group of people and I genuinely enjoy what I do.  I’m not exactly passionate about it though, which is why I’m also a Certified FASTer Way to Fat Loss® coach.  What I am passionate about is helping others on their wellness journey.  I’ve watched too many of my loved ones suffer from things like diabetes and heart disease.  I love that making changes to your diet and exercise can have such a significant impact on your health.  I want to help you make the most of the time you’ve got here on Earth and just FEEL GOOD!

I’ve always been somewhat athletic — I did gymnastics when I was younger, then cheered and tumbled in middle and high school, I played softball for a few years as well.  I’m also a recovering distance runner.  I struggled to lose the baby weight after my daughter was born and started running, then got hooked.  Over the course of about three years I ran three marathons, a dozen or so half marathons, and more 5Ks than I can count.  While I did lose weight and felt fit, it was hard on my body and I was constantly battling injuries.

I started the FASTer Way to Fat Loss® in May of 2018 and haven’t looked back since. I love how much my relationship with food has changed.  I love that get to eat the foods that I love without feeling guilty and I really love the way the FASTer Way makes me look and feel!

I’d love to have you join me in my next boot camp!
