I have been active all my life with sports and outdoor activities and I knew I wanted to pursue a career in the health/fitness field but I just fell into personal training after college. I got my bachelors degree from Miami University with a focus in Exercise Science and Nutrition in 2005. I was debating whether or not to go back to school right away to get my masters degree or find a job. So I took a job as a personal trainer in 2005 here in Columbus and haven’t looked back since.

Through the years I have worked with people from every walk of life in nearly every situation possible, from working with young athletes on up to the professional ranks. I went back to school and got my masters in sports performance enhancement and injury prevention in 2011 just before coming to work here at the Arena District Athletic Club in January 2012.
