    I have been a personal trainer for 11 years and it has been a very rewarding journey for me. Seeing people work to change themselves in a positive way making their way through uncomfortable and difficult habits to be who they want to be and feel how they want to feel is very fulfilling for me. I have been coaching people since i was 12 years old in a men's junior olympic environment and this helped set me up to have a great base for being a personal trainer.

    When training a client, my goal is to ensure they experience a balance of socializing and working out. I typically engage with clients by discussing sports or sharing the latest joke I've heard in an attempt to make them laugh. Coaching is akin to teaching, providing a comfortable environment where clients can ask questions and learn.

    in my free time I like to
    Outside of training, I coach youth basketball to better help these athletes with injury reduction and increasing sports performance. I also have a dog named Melo, who's great when he's not attempting to steal my food. Aha!

    • Enrolled at UMASS Lowell in their doctorate degree in physical therapy
    • CPR/First Aid

    I was an active child growing up but it wasn't until high school that I was exposed to more structured fitness that included weight training. My coach’s husband was a certified personal trainer and thought it was important for our team to have a well-rounded training program for injury prevention and performance improvement. As a result, I learned how much I enjoy working out, and I developed an appreciation for the importance it has both on physical health and overall wellbeing. Currently, I am in my senior year at Umass Lowell finishing my degree in Exercise Science. I came to Fitness Together as an intern this past fall and began working part time once the internship concluded. I enjoy my time at Fitness Together and look forward to strengthening my experience and improving my ability to help clients achieve their goals!

    in my free time I like to
    Hang out with my friends and family, hike, read, and watch movies (especially Marvel movies!!).

    I first started training through football in middle school and high school. I had an amazing strength coach who taught me all of the fundamentals and gave me a foundation that I have been able to build upon to this day. While I did not continue playing sports in college, I continued to get more serious about fitness, and I would not be where I am today without that experience. Seeing the positive impact that just one coach was able to have on my life inspired me to pursue a career in fitness and personal training, to hopefully be able to help others and provide them with some of the knowledge and experience I was lucky enough to receive.

    in my free time I like to
    I enjoy drawing, live music, movies (especially in theaters), and have been in a very serious fantasy football league with my friends for over 10 years.
