A Connecticut girl at heart, she started soccer at the age of 4, graduated to lacrosse and swim team at Farmington High School and later got into running races and bodybuilding to not only enhance her overall athleticism, but to challenge herself in new ways, after she graduated George Mason University in 2007.  Sports and recreation has always been her lifeblood, fueling her desire to influence others through SerenaFit, established in 2008. 

Since she started her business, she's traveled the world as an entrepreneur, learning about business operations from various start up communities, connecting, growing and leading together with global figures who innovate and want to change the way we live. It's about making an impact, for her. 

After spending ten years in Washington, DC Serena moved to Philly in 2015 and loves meeting like minded business owners and locals who  think outside the box. It's all about community and friendship for her, living for the experience and adventure of it all. Travel, great wine, family, Saturday mornings, good conversation, pressed juices & hot yoga are a few of her favorite things. You can find her power walking the city, most days of the week, in-between meetings and sessions!
