Hi, I’m Kathy!
I’m a fitness enthusiast and lifelong Rhode Islander, passionate about helping women improve their quality of life both in body and mind. My goal is to help you live a healthier life and feel amazing in the process.
I know what it’s like to juggle responsibilities and commit to make wellness a priority. I’ve raised two amazing, strong girls into successful young women, and coached youth gymnastics, soccer, and basketball while co-founding a successful fitness and wellness consulting company. With over 35 years experience in the health and fitness industry, I’m thrilled to be able to share my key strategies with other women. I’ve locked down solutions to helping you set the right goals, adopt a new fitness program and, most importantly, stick to it for the long-term. With my expertise, my clients have enjoyed long-term success!
I earned my B.S. in Exercise Science and shortly after co-founded Pro Health, Inc., a fitness and wellness consulting and management company. In 2007, I joined the incredible team at Preventure Inc., and continued bringing my passion to the corporate wellness industry. In my years training and coaching clients in corporate fitness centers, I realized that my clients weren’t only saving money (up to $500/year!) on healthcare costs, they were also improving relationships and meeting personal goals. Fitness was impacting more than just their time in the gym. It was changing their lives all around.
Having seen the power of fitness first hand, I started ShipShape™ to use my expertise to empower other women in their personal journeys. It’s more than a destination, it’s about building lifelong health. Set sail with me and sea the results!
Along with my passion for fitness, I enjoy sailing and powerboating, hiking, gardening, and spending time with my husband, daughters and godchildren.
