I earned a Master of Science in Exercise Physiology degree after earning a Bachelor of Science degree in Exercise Science, both from Southern Illinois University at Edwardsville. I have extensive experience in exercise/performance testing and prescription through Washington University’s School of Medicine. Along with my personal training position, I am an Exercise Physiologist in a clinical cardiac/pulmonary rehabilitation setting. My career allows me the tremendous opportunity to experience firsthand both preventative medicines (exercise) as well as curative medicine (clinical). An exercise routine for many people may lack longevity due to a number of different reasons. My goal and motivation is to help you recognize these deterrents and to set in motion a designed plan of action for long term success. Educating and instructing someone with the tools to depict his or her own future through fitness and nutrition is a true passion of mine. Through hard work, dedication, and excitement, I will be the catalyst to your success by helping you attain the goals you have set for yourself. My stand on health and wellness are fundamentally grounded on safe and effective exercise in addition to proper nutrition. Setting feasible goals for oneself and attaining those goals are gifts that everyone has the capability and opportunity to achieve! Determined by true enthusiasm for implementing the importance of putting YOUR health first, I will help you recognize how truly valuable is consistent, long-term exercise.
