My journey into fitness and personal training began 10 years ago when I first encountered lower back pain brought on by postural imbalance and poor biomechanics in my exercises and everyday activities. Growing up in a very strict homeopathic and holistic household. I knew that relief from anti-inflammatory drugs was not an option. This led me to a weight training class in school where I discovered the key to becoming pain-free. Within 3 weeks of proper training my lower back pain was gone and I felt better physically and emotionally. During this time I grew fond of the human musculoskeletal system in anatomy class and enjoyed applying my knowledge in a fitness setting. I declared kinesiology as my major and went on to excel in classes focusing on proper biomechanics exercise nutrition and physiology preventative and corrective exercises as well as research-supported supplementation. I finished my kinesiology degree in 2013. In addition to the pre-medical course work required for medical school. Along with my degree I obtained a NASM certification for personal training and was ecstatic to begin sharing my knowledge with fellow 24 Hour Fitness members. Above anything else I am motivated to bring people to optimal health through correct exercise nutrition and supplementation. I thrive on positive energy and appreciate the importance of communication while training. Believe it or not I enjoy spending my free time learning about new and innovative exercises that are specific to each of my individual clients. At the end of the day their health and well-being is more valuable than anything else.
