Years of experience:  I started my journey into health and fitness back in 2017, when I got my first certification through the NASM. Shortly after I started my career as a trainer, I decided I wanted to learn more about how to enhance athletic ability, prevent injury, and create pain-free movement for my clients. I was certified as a core-conditioning and biomechanics specialist in 2020 and I am currently pursuing the physical therapy assistant program at KCC. My goal is to help people move more efficiently and stay as independently functional as long as possible.

Specialization: Functional training, athletic performance, and core-conditioning. I love the passion, drive, and motivation an athlete brings to the table; however, I also enjoy working with clients of any age or skill level.

Interesting fact: I love 80’s rock band films, professional basketball, and spicy ahi

Hobbies, interests: I enjoy lifting weights, surfing, and listening to music

What got you interested in your field/passions? The men in my family are all coaches; my dad, brother, and grandpa. I grew up going to football and basketball games and fell in love with sports at a very young age. My brother is now a trainer and strength and conditioning coach. I’ve always looked up to him, so of course, I followed in his footsteps and became a coach too. The human body is amazing and is capable of so much more than you think!
