We met in 2013 through our first local fitness competition in Arizona. It was the first time both of us had competed and we found comfort in the fact that we were both newbies. Since then, our friendship has blossomed and after getting to know one another more we found that we share a similar vision of inspiring other women to live fit and healthy lifestyles and to live beyond the physical transformation. We both started our own
brands, but it wasn’t too soon after that we realized our brands were very similar and could be better represented as a team. We decided to join forces and start IMPRINT.
Our goal with IMPRINT is to empower women to make their mark by building their confidence and connections through beauty, fashion, fitness and relationships. We believe that a true transformation begins on the inside and reflects on the outside and it is the journey of getting there which truly impacts you. It is our vision to empower others with our own personal story, life experiences, events and workshops. We know what it feels like to be lost in our purpose and confused about who we are and what we stand for. We are humbled by our own transformations, inspired by the gift a fit and healthy lifestyle has given us and grateful for the amazing relationships we have formed along the way. Our affinity for all things beauty including make-up and fashion has paved the way for our styling services. We are true girly girls at heart and want to give back to other women and impress the importance of finding your “WHY” and acknowledging that burning desire to be something more, something that truly leaves a lasting IMPRINT.
We are both motivated and committed to make a difference and share our love and wisdom with others. Whether it is your goal to compete in a fitness competition, plan a photo shoot, need makeup/hair/styling services, want to get more insight and education about health and fitness or want to connect to more women, we are your fitness, beauty and styling empowerment team and here to help you #Make Your Mark!
