Originally from St. Paul, my family moved to Georgia while I was very young, where I call home. I took part in sports at very young age. I began with the sport of softball and played basketball. My true love of sport was found in gymnastics. I was a trained gymnast from elementary school age to high school age. I was competitive and competed at a state level. Along with gymnastics, I partook in swimming, color guard team and dance team.
I attended Armstrong Atlantic State University where I earned a bachelor’s of science degree in health science with a physical therapy concentration. I obtained another degree while studying physical therapy at The University of Pittsburgh. Science is one of best subjects. I desired to have a career helping people achieve not only physical health, but overall well-being.
Another sport that I feel in love with is long distance running. Growing up I was never a good runner of long distance. I picked up running as a hobby 11 years ago as a means to achieve optimal health and shape. It was not too long after I picked up the sport that I realized I truly enjoyed it much more than I ever did or thought I would. I have run a number of 5Ks in which I fulfilled top placings. I have made big goals to accomplish within this sport that I have yet to achieve.
More recently, I switched from running being my main sport to weight lifting. Weight lifting, like running, is a sport that I never showed excellence. Like with running, I did not become discourage to try something that was so foreign to me. I am a nationally qualified amateur NPC bikini competitor body builder. I have been a competitor for 4 years.
Most recently, I worked as a fitness specialist/exercise teacher and kickboxing trainer and I loved it. Currently, I design weight training and diet plans for many clients.
