As a child, she was exposed to a wide variety of sports and activities, including taekwondo and tennis, which fostered an interest in the human body and movement. She has always been active and participated in water paddling sports for many years.

She has volunteered at Rancho Los Amigos National Rehabilitation Center in Downey, mainly at the Inpatient clinic where she worked with a variety of patients, including brain and spinal cord injuries, stroke patients, and other neuromuscular diseases. She has also worked as a Personal Trainer at 24 Hour Fitness, and interned at several other fitness facilities.
