I started my athletic career at 5 years old competing in USA swimming. As a swimmer, I was awarded an NCAA division 1-A Scholarship at The University Of Pittsburgh. I qualified for and competed in three Junior National Championships, four National Championships, Big East Conference Championships and qualified for the Olympic Trials in the 100yd Butterfly with a time of 45:46. Later, as a Competitive Exerciser, I ranked 26th worldwide in the 2015 Masters Qualifier for the Reebok Crossfit Games. I have been training athletes of various levels for 25 years and hold several personal training certificates. I focus on strength as a skill and utilizes functional movements as drills to develop that skill and maximize functionality. More importantly I believe that focusing on improving the skill of strength, creates durability, longevity, and resistance to chronic disease. I have been awarded Strong First Kettlebell SFG-1, Strong First Bodyweight, Functional Movement Screen FMS Level 2, USA Weightlifting USAW-1, Yoga RYT-200, and NASM PT. I attended SFL in July 2019 and certification is pending the Bench Press strength test. I am registered to attend Strong Endurance in Denver October 5-6 2019. I will be assisting Karen Smith for SFB as well as providing the host facility the following weekend October 12-14 2019, and I am registered to attend SFG2 November 2-3 2019. I am training with the goal to be awarded Strong First Elite by 2020.
