About Coach

I grew up playing volleyball and from then on I always knew I wanted to pursue a career in health and wellness. I had been doing CrossFit for about 6 months before my personal training professor at ECU told me about his weightlifting club. I decided to try it out since lifting weights was my favorite part of every CorssFit class. I competed in my first weightlifting competition five months later and I've been competing ever since. During that time I also started my personal training career in NYC before moving back home to Charlotte in 2022.

Turning Point

After losing somebody close to me, I took up running to help with the grieving process. I quickly realized how much of a difference it made in my mood, energy levels, sleep, appetite, and even my relationships. I was experiencing this while I was getting my B.S. in Health Fitness Specialist, so I was also learning how it benefitted our health from a physiological aspect as well. I began to realize how incredibly powerful movement and exercise are. I've been passionate about helping others ever since.

Motivation & Passion

My passion is to help and educate people about how impactful exercise can be. My goal as a coach is to help someone become the best version of themselves while enjoying the process of getting there.
