    Born & raised in Iowa, college in Ohio, and now living in Georgia. Fitness has been a passion of mine ever since I was prescribed swimming by my pediatrician to fight (and ultimately cure) my debilitating asthma. After experiencing the benefits firsthand, I made a point to constantly stay active, either with sports, lifting weights, cardio or just activities with friends. During college I studied media, marketing and theatre (I've also been acting since middle school), but still maintained that active lifestyle. Even with a packed schedule full of extracurricular activities, multiple jobs, and social events, I always made time for fitness. It wasn't until the Covid-19 induced quarantine that I became compelled to pursue fitness and nutrition professionally. Seeing the host of negative effects on people's lives both online and in-person, pushed me to become properly educated in order to help everyone reintroduce and maintain those healthy habits in the pursuit of a happier lifestyle.

    In my free time I like to cook, see what shows or movies might be interesting to watch, spend time with friends, and explore the surrounding Atlanta area. I'm currently signed with an agency for modeling and commercials, so I regularly work on updating my portfolio with photographers. I'm also a freelance video editor, working with clients as well as just-for-fun projects on my own. When I have the time, I love to read and write as well.
