About Coach

I graduated from Hofstra University in 2018 where I spent 4 years as a Division I athlete in lacrosse. As soon as I graduated I started weightlifting 5 days a week and set goals to qualify for AOF and Nationals. I took on a Strength and Conditioning internship with our student-athletes during grad school before taking the Assistant Track and Field Coach position at Hofstra in the fall of 2019. I was in charge of programming and coaching our T&F athletes through strength and speedwork sessions. I moved to the Charlotte area in July 2020 and have been a member of Charlotte Strength ever since!

Turning Point

Motivation & Passion

I'm coaching because I always loved how it felt to get stronger and constantly see what goals I could accomplish through training, and it is so rewarding to be able to help others do the same! It's always exciting to see someone's confidence grow in the gym and their sport or daily life!
