Welcome, I would like to introduce myself as a highly passionate individual when it comes to fitness and wellness. I have been involved in strength training, duathlons, Track and Field, Field Hockey, and several outdoor activities for as long as I can recall. My newest love is to compete in several obstacle course races each year.
I recently came from Corporate America, where although I enjoyed what I did, I lacked passion and desire. I decided to pursue a career in a field that drives and inspires me most…helping others understand why exercise is a vital part of one’s life and how to achieve their personal fitness goals.
I am most successful in customizing programs that are suitable for each individual, as no two bodies are alike. I’m interested in learning about each individual and what motivates them as a means of guiding individuals to achieving their personal fitness goals. I enjoy the satisfaction and sense of accomplishment when a client has made measurable strides toward their goal. It is gratifying and an almost unimaginable feeling each and every day to come to work and help others feel good about themselves emotionally and physically. I am conscious about proper body mechanics as this is a vital component to building strength.
Designing an active program for you, and providing nutritional guidance is key to your overall success. I look forward to helping you achieve your health and fitness goals.

I grew up a very active child playing a variety of sports with a focus on baseball. My love for sports and passion for helping people inspired me to start a career in the fitness industry. I relocated to the Boston area from Florida and graduated from the University of Massachusetts in 2009 with a Bachelor of Science in Exercise and Health Sciences. While attending UMASS Boston, I had the opportunity to play for the New England Baseball League and to intern at Mass General Hospital Heart Center where I assisted in their Cardiac Rehab program.
Since 2009, I have built on my interests in sports and fitness by becoming a certified trainer through the National Academy of Sports Medicine, and obtaining other certifications including Functional Movement Screen, Functional Strength Coach, USA Weightlifting Sports Performance Coach, and Kettlebell Concepts Instructor. I enjoy working with clients individually and in small groups while specializing in weight loss, sports performance enhancement, injury prevention and rehabilitation. My philosophy for moving well first and building a strong foundation has enabled my clients to reach their goals by maximizing their potential and minimizing injuries.
I look forward to working with new clients, encouraging them to be their best self and continuing to grow in my experience!

I grew up with the privilege of living an active lifestyle between the various sports and outdoor recreation in my life. This fed my passion for fitness at a young age. Throughout High School and College I learned the values of discipline and self-motivation in the gym. During my time in College I coached volleyball at a high level and worked to grow the sport and motivate individuals to be better on and off the court.
I believe in finding a balance that is right for each individual and understands that no two programs will be the same. I’m passionate about motivating people to become better versions of themselves, putting mental and physical health first. I hopes to find a balance that fits each client reach and surpass their goals.
During my time at Saint Joseph’s College I worked in the human performance lab where I tested and evaluated athletes and prescribed a program that best suited that athlete. I am passionate about injury prevention and believes mental health and self-care should be a priority.
I’m looking forward to motivating and encouraging all of you to be your best and push yourself out of your comfort zone.
