I view my job as a trainer as an opportunity to help someone improve their overall quality of life. I love this partnership and am grateful for the opportunity to create this wellness relationship.
I hold specific beliefs as to which programming is most efficacious for improving cardiovascular endurance, enhancing neuromuscular control and building strength, however, I fully understand that first and foremost I must meet a client where they are at any given moment.
There is no one size fits all.
Wellness has been a part of my life since I was a child. I was 12 when I decided to become a vegetarian despite living in one of the barbeque capitals of the world—Kansas City.
Throughout school, I balanced being an athlete and student. In high school, I was an All-District volleyball player and played competitive club softball. I chose my undergraduate and Master’s degrees, in social work, because I understood that wellness is both physical and mental health.
Over the past fourteen years I have worked as a fitness instructor and personal trainer. I approach each session or class as an opportunity to improve physical and mental health.
