Rebecca studied Physical Education in College, and after that continued her education, studying anatomy, nutrition, and a variety of styles of fitness.  In 2016 she started working with Tribe Team Training®, and this is when she found all she was looking for in one program.  Rebecca started as a coach and less than 6 months later she was invited to Canada and became a TRIBE Master Coach. She says it’s the best decision she could have made to become part of the TRIBE family. TRIBE made her a better Personal Trainer, Coach, and person.
