    Born and raised in Long island New York. As an adolescent I was always involved in sports and loved staying active. Despite being involved in athletics, my weight was always on the heavier side in comparison to my peers. I realized that if I could transform my own body, then why couldn’t I help others transform theirs? I wanted to educate, motivate, and help others to be the absolute best versions of themselves, while giving them the guidance to not make the same mistakes that I had made early on. I fell in love with seeing others succeed and decided that I wanted to make helping others with their health & wellness goals a full-time career. I understood how to ge results, but I wanted to understand the body further to assist every possible demographic of clientele. I became an ACE certified personal trainer back in 2016, but I wanted to gain more knowledge on the science behind exercising. At this point, I decided to pursue my bachelors degree in exercise science at SUNY Cortland.

    in my free time I like to
    I enjoy surfing, snowboarding, playing basketball, and most of all spending quality time with my Fiancé and our fur baby (Mr.Guy).

    Growing up back in Minnesota our weather was not like California, so I really had to make the most of being active outdoors when I could! I was involved with sports, biking, skateboarding and rollerblading became one of my favorite. Like most people, as I got older, life gets in the way..especially when I went to college. Through my experiences with learning how important our health is, I found my real passion for leading a healthy lifestyle. I love being a part of others health and wellness journey and helping my clients through their struggles and to reach their goals, so they can feel better about themselves and to know that they are not alone. Whether it is helping clients lose weight, gain muscle or helping with aches and pains, I aspire to create an environment where people are getting fit while having fun! To stay motivated through all of life's struggles and to learn how to take care of their bodies.

    in my free time I like to
    Spend time outdoors rollerblading, hiking or going on walks with my husband. I'm obsessed with my cats, they can do no wrong! I like going to concerts and sporting events, especially football and baseball. I continue to learn more about being the best trainer I can be.

    • Emergency Medical Technician Certification

    My passion towards fitness began at an early age. Throughout high school, I was involved in a variety of sports such as baseball, mountain biking, volleyball, dirt biking and more. In doing so, I was introduced to physical fitness at a young age and quickly discovered a passion for improving myself through continuous fitness training. I learned the unique ways in which different physical activities can target and build varying muscles. A lifelong dream of mine is to become a firefighter. Due to the demanding physical requirements of the job, I began to train in order to prepare for a career as a firefighter and pursued my degree at SDSU. Furthermore, I was given the opportunity to intern at different fitness facilities in San Diego to gain a greater understanding of the role. I aim to bring my knowledge regarding fitness training and nutrition to Fitness Together and look forward to helping you all become the best and most healthy versions of yourself.

    in my free time I like to
    When I am not at Fitness Together, I like to spend my free time doing activities with either my girlfriend, Lauren, or my roommates. Additionally, I enjoy playing guitar, golfing, mountain biking, and weight lifting.

    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.
