It began when I started at Masonic Village 20 years ago. My passion has always been in helping others, and in doing so, I feel I have grown in the different dimensions of wellness as well. I have felt proudest anytime a member has mentioned that what I showed them helped them in one way or another, such as when a personal training client needs the lift to enter the pool at first and then progresses to entering and exiting the pool via the steps.

Strength training, functional training and balance and gait
I’ve always been active. However, once I started lifting, I realized I wanted to empower people by showing them they can be strong. My personal wellness accomplishments include training for and successfully doing a single arm military press lifting 1/3 my body weight. It was a struggle, but I pushed through thanks to dedication and smart training.

Wellness became my passion during a personal battle that began when I was 18. I enjoy helping others because it fulfills me and I feel like we were put on this earth to help each other in some way. My personal wellness goals are to run in a 100 mile race before I’m 40 and just to stay happy and grateful for my health and what I have. My proudest accomplishment related to fitness has been helping someone learn to walk again after years of being unable.
