DEGREES & CERTIFICATIONS:
B.S. Biology (Magna Cum Laude)

Certified Personal Trainer

SPECIALIZATION:
Health and Wellness
Functional & Corrective Exercise
Performance Enhancement

BIO: My inspiration for how I train my clients and athletes revolves around a combination of prehab, functional strength training, and rehab work. Working my way up to become a Division II Volleyball player, I learned the value of mastering one level of fitness at a time. Learn to control your own bodyweight before you lift heavy, gain strength and learn how to control weight before you work on power - and the whole time stay focused on performing the smaller exercises to reduce chance of injury and strengthen problem areas you already have. If you train like an athlete, moving through all planes of motion focusing on strength and power, you will be ready for anything life throws at you and stronger because of it.
