“My job is to make your image the best that it can be, and I cannot imagine spending my life doing anything else.”
“I think of myself as someone who helps people transform themselves so that the image they have of themselves in their mind’s eye matches the one in the mirror. I enjoy helping people realize their true potential by creating a body that is fit for the spirit that resides within.”
