Before pursuing a career in fitness, I studied Physical Education and Athletic Training at Colorado State University. I then went on to complete a Master's Degree in Education with an emphasis in Physical Education and Athletic Training from Utah State University. Upon completing my advanced degree I was one of the first seventy-five women certified as an athletic trainer in the United States. I then worked as the Women's Head Athletic Trainer and sports medicine instructor at University of Nevada, Reno. Upon moving to Southern California, I took on the challenge of Athletic Trainer at one for the local high schools in the Chino Valley. Seeking rehabilitation for high school adolescents, I earned my license as an Assistant Physical Therapist and worked in clinical physical therapy and sports medicine for 17 years. As fitness and athletics have always been my first passion, I decided to direct my career towards improving the health of others through personal training. Aside from my skills as a therapist and trainer, I also have a background in track and field, golf, kayaking, and other sports. This experience along with my knowledge of fitness allows me to keep my clients engaged through a well-balanced selection of exercises. I really enjoy working with people who have diverse needs and tailor each workout to meet the goals we set together. As someone who struggles with the effects of thyroid disease, I particularly understand the influence of hormones and the aging process. In my nearly 5 years with 24 Hour Fitness I have trained over 7,763 sessions and look forward to many more. Come by the club and speak to me, together we can reach your goals.
