    I am a Georgia native! I grew up in Valdosta where my family has their own produce company. I graduated from Abraham Baldwin College but moved up to the Atlanta area for more opportunities to help people in the wellness industry. I've been active my whole life, playing in sports and working with the family business. What I love about FT is our clientelle - they are some of the most hardworking and committed people I've ever met and they inspire me every day. I also love that I'm part of such an amazing team of trainers. I have such a strong desire to see my clients reach a level of self confidence so I love that I get to show people that they can accomplish any goal they set their minds to!

    in my free time I like to
    spend time in they gym (go figure!). I've learned so much about how to challenge others by challenging myself in the gym. When I'm not in the gym, though, I love spending time in my yard, reading, watching sports and playing video games!

    In 2018, after having spent most of my career in business management, I was looking for a new challenge and a job change. Fitness has been a priority to me for as long as I can remember, and I realized I could turn that passion into my profession. I became a certified personal trainer in 2019 and began the transition from the “business world” to the “fitness world” by leading group fitness classes at senior centers. While my specialization is in senior fitness, I love training people of all ages and have found Fitness Together to be a wonderful place to pursue my passion. What I enjoy most about working at FT are the clients and the staff! The clients here are fun, thoughtful, energetic people who work hard to improve the quality of their lives through exercise. Working with them inspires me to become the best trainer I can be. The staff at FT is second to none. It is a joy to work alongside people who sincerely care about helping others and who take pride in their work.

    in my free time I like to
    hike and camp - those are my favorite outdoor activities, and I spend many of my days off in north Georgia playing in the woods! When I’m not at FT or on a trail, I enjoy reading, sketching, going to concerts, and spending time with my family & friends.

    Growing up, I was an avid sports fan (still am) and an athlete. It was as a kid that I fell in love with exercise and working to improve my own performance on the field. I found my true fitness journey while in college playing collegiate tennis where I realized that I wanted to help others gain better performance in all aspects of their lives. I was hired at Fitness Together right out of college and have loved being part of a passionate team that works together to help the lives of our hard working clients. I love the relationships I've built and it is those relationships that inspire me to remain committed and drive me to continuously improve myself so that I can help my clients.

    in my free time I like to
    play all kinds of sports and card games and other games of any sort (you could say I'm a little competitive ;). I also love spending quality time with my close friends and family and also, working on my own physical and mental wellbeing through exercise and fitness.

    • Bachelor's Degree in Community Health and Wellness
    • Nationally Certified Personal Trainer by the American Council on Exercise

    I was born in Indianapolis but I've lived in GA for most of my life. I've always been active, participating in all kinds of sports from swimming to wrestling. My interest in health and fitness actually began in high school when I was on the wrestling team and had to learn how to get strong and "cut" weight. I began researching all I could about working out, lifting weights and how to eat right and lose weight. As I was learning all of this, my passion grew and I realized I wanted to help others who wanted to get healthy or lose weight. And so, I began my education in Community Health. Now, I get to use my passion for health, fitness and nutrition to help those around me. What I love most about personal training an watching my clients reach the goals they set for themselves, no matter how big or small. Reaching a personal goal can be life changing and it gives me purpose to see that happen for my clients.

    in my free time I like to
    exercise and enjoy the outdoors. I love to hike and kayak but I also like to stay inside and play video games from time to time ;) Something interesting about me...I was actually on the United States Swim Team in South Carolina. Also, my birthday is on April Fool's Day!

    I am a lifelong athlete...I love exercise and enjoy kickboxing and playing basketball. I also love the outdoors; hiking and swimming...hot days in the sand, by the beach. I was mentored from a very young age by a phenomenal and inspiring coach. He taught me not only about hard work but about taking pride in my craft and always working to continuously improve myself. It was during my time learning from him that I realized I wanted to coach others and inspire them. I am currently studying for my degree in Journalism. I hope to use that knowledge combined with my passion for helping people to make an impact on my community through teaching people how to have a better life through better health and improved fitness. I love working at Fitness Together because I get the opportunity to do what I love everyday; to help people and serve my community. Also, my goals align with the values of FT.

    • B.S. from Kennesaw State University
    • Nationally Certified Personal Trainer through the American Council on Exercise

    I was born and raised in Roswell, GA and graduated from Kennesaw State University. Growing up, I was always that kid that was playing outside, participating in sports…I couldn’t sit still! I’ve played many sports but baseball has always been my passion. Playing baseball, I suffered many injuries, from a torn quadricep and a dislocated shoulder to chronic tendonitis. My interest in fitness began when I had to figure out how to stay active while working around my injuries. At that time, I also had some of my own aesthetic goals. So, I began researching all kinds of programs and different ways to challenge and change my own body. While studying this, I also realized that I could help my baseball teammates better their performance through better programming. Today, I use the knowledge and experience I’ve gained as well as my passion for helping people to design programs for my clients that will get them to optimal health and well being while staying injury free.

    in my free time I like to
    work out, travel, hike and go rock climbing. I've been to over 80 concerts so I also love to listen to music and go to shows!
