My interest in physical fitness and exercise started in my youth. I’ve participated in organized sports my whole life, including basketball, softball and field hockey. I was introduced to weight training while playing Division 1 softball at Rutgers. After graduating, I realized my passion for fitness demanded more education. I returned to college and earned my Physical Education degree. I immediately loved teaching PE. With so many sedentary activities in the lives of our youth, I enjoyed teaching them about fitness and watch them find enjoyment in it. I was even fortunate enough to coach high school athletes. I decided to take it one step further and became a personal trainer in order to help not only the youth but adults of all ages find that same enjoyment out of doing something that deeply benefits their quality of life. I love being part of someone’s successful moments by pushing them beyond what they thought they could do and celebrating their achievements with my humorous and lighthearted personality. My goal is to help everyone meet their goals, whether it’s weight loss, building strength, or just bettering overall health, by working hand in hand to find a program that you love.
