About Coach

I played every sport growing up including competitive cheer. I played basketball for Division I and II schools as a team captain and all-conference player. I interned as a strength and conditioning coach for the athletes at the University of Tampa in between my basketball seasons while studying exercise science.

Turning Point

I had no major life plans after college, all I knew was I wanted to travel the world playing professional ball overseas. Two weeks before my tryouts, I tore my ACL playing pick-up ball and lost sight of that dream. After 3 years of recovery due to complications, I gave up basketball and rerouted my passion into fitness as it was a huge part of my injury journey. I began working at the sports training facility that I was training at in 2016. Since then I have coached at several different fitness facilities ranging from boxing to strength and conditioning with professional athletes.

Motivation & Passion

My purpose for coaching is to be part of improving someone's day. Making the slightest difference in their life whether it's the physical, emotional, or mental aspect, or a combination of the three. I love to see and be a part of someone's journey to evolve into their best self.
