I grew up in North Central West Virginia, living there until I graduated college. Wanting to explore new places and experience new things, but not leave the beautiful Appalachian Mountain view, I ended up here in Asheville, North Carolina. When graduating college, I was still trying to find my way. While working a couple of different jobs, I came across an ad to work at a local gym. That was when it all came into place.

Working in the fitness industry definitely keeps you on your toes- literally. I found new strengths I didn’t even know I had. However, I am not in this industry to have six-pack abs, to run a marathon, or to lift heavy; I am in this industry to coach, to motivate, to educate, and to train others to achieve their goals. Having the knowledge is one thing, but to hands-on help individuals on their own fitness journey is the most rewarding part of my “job.” 

I love what I do and I love to meet new people to educate, to motivate, and to train. 

My certifications include:

National Academy of Sports Medicine Certified Personal Trainer (NASM-CPT)

Level 2 Advanced Spinning Instructor with Mad Dogg Athletics 

TRX Suspension Training

TRX Suspension Training with Small Groups

TRX Functional Training
