“The little birdy on your shoulder!”

I’ve had the honor of working as a personal coach for Chad’s team since 2009, right after he helped me with my own transformation. What Chad did to help me changed my life forever, and today I get to be that difference in others’ lives.

I am a very lucky girl in that I get to do something every day that I 100% believe in, and makes a difference…and I get to do so with a crazy fun team who are all inspiring, caring, passionate and dedicated people. What’s not to like?!!

General Manager

Hey, I'm Neil. I spend my time trying to wrangle the business, operations and staff of FITera into a well-oiled machine. I’m also good at party games and being late for meetings.

When not at work I can be found mountain-biking, paddling and snowboarding around the beautiful state of Oregon, often with some excitable toddlers in tow.

"Why is everything broken?"

I joined the team in the Summer of 2012. I do a variety of things for FITera, including systems management/integrations, media creation, website coding, analytics, and a variety of other technical tasks.

I love being able to do the things I’m good at, in an environment where everyone really cares about each other, the company, and the customers we serve.

"Shell-sa"

My job is to help FITera run smoothly as we continue to grow. When I'm at work you can find me playing with massive amounts of data and doing "boring math stuff" that makes everybody's lives easier. Newsflash: I don't find it boring! I love working with this team and making the world a healthier, happier place.

Outside of work you can find me traveling, camping, biking or some combination of the three.
