    In May 2017 I moved from Kentucky to San Diego to pursue a career in the fitness industry. I have a weight loss background and have a passion for helping others reach their goals while also becoming more functional in all areas of life. I am a firm believer in mind and body, in order to make any kind of transformation, you have to be in the right place mentally. You have to be able to tell yourself you can do it and push through those times you may not want to keep pressing on! I have a background in Elementary Education but after being on my own health and fitness journey, I decided I wanted to help others achieve fitness goals. I have a holistic approach when it comes to health and fitness and want to give you a toolbox of tools instead of just one or two things. I want you to know that with time, consistency, and hard work you WILL achieve your goals (fitness and beyond). I want to teach you how to live a life beyond fitness so that you can achieve your greatest potential!

    in my free time I like to
    go hiking, National Park traveling, doing activities with my church, going out with friends.

    Born in Virginia Beach and raised in San Diego in a Military Family. My involvement in athletics began at an early age through a variety of sports but I found my passion in baseball which I played through High School. Growing up I was always considered the “Skinny Kid”; this is something I heard most of my life and grew used to hearing so never took the steps to get in the gym and change it.My Senior Year I was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s Lymphoma which is a cancer that targets the Lymphatic System. Through treatment I put on a lot of weight in a short amount of time which led to confidence issues. Through this hard time in my life, I found my passion for working out which ultimately led to my passion of helping others improve their overall wellbeing.

    in my free time I like to
    When outside of Fitness Together, you can find me spending my day with my dog, with the Friends I’ve made through the Fitness Industry, furthering my education, and getting my workout in for the day. On a Lazy day, I love watching sports, movies, playing video games, or lounging by the pool.

    Born and raised in San Diego California, I always knew that I would stay in the city where the weather was nicest. Having lived in Eugene OR, The weather was often very dreary until the spring and summer which is where I would partake in runs around Autzen Stadium and throughout the Willamette river. A primary driving factor in why I have chosen this career path is my love for making change and breaking bad habits. Despite last minute studying for final exams and gloomy weather ⅗ times out of the year, I made it a priority to stay fit and active through early morning/late night gym sessions. I was in the best shape of my life after graduating from the University of Oregon despite the restriction that COVID-19 put on my academics and health. With a barrier such as those two, I assure that I will be able to help break your bad habits and implement the change that you desire for a jubilant and healthy lifestyle.

    in my free time I like to
    go to the gym, play videogames/watch movies with my friends, DJ/go to music festivals, Cook, watch sports (Lakers/Padres) and hang out with my dog in the sunny SD sun.

    Prior to pursuing my major, I'd gone through many weight loss journeys. A couple being, losing almost 120 lbs & competing at my first bodybuilding show! During my high school days I was fairly overweight. I was always that one kid in the friend group who would be picked around for being “The Big Guy”. I also had a strong passion to join the military as well. The idea of joining the military was my motivation to lose weight and commit to exercising and portioning what I ate. I would say for about 6 months, I went from being 268 lbs to 156 lbs. I was surprised about losing 112 lbs and opened my insight about what I wanted to pursue in life. Rather than joining the military and serving our nation, I’d rather pursue health & wellness: serving and helping those who are stuck and always wanted to get better. Fast forward to Now I have been in the Personal Training and Fitness Aspect for 4 years now and loving every moment seeing the people I train unlock their true potential!

    in my free time I like to
    spend time with my family and friends! I really enjoy going to the beach to surf and swim. Of course I take my health very seriously, so I do some sort of weight-training daily.
