I attended high school locally in Mt. Morris and graduated in 2015. At Mt. Morris, I was a multi-sport athlete (football, power-lifting, and track). I started to get into the weight room when I was a freshman, but my passion for fitness did not begin until my sophomore year when I joined the power-lifting team. My coach started to teach me about the benefits of lifting and how it could impact my life positively. Soon after, I discovered that weight-training and fitness was a great outlet. As a result, I began to study and absorb as much information as I could about fitness.
After high school, I knew I wanted to expand my knowledge on exercise and nutrition. I decided to attend Alma College where I also was a four year letter-winner playing football. As a senior, I earned second team all-conference honors after leading my team in tackles and was voted as the defensive player of the year by my teammates. Most importantly, I graduated with a Bachelor's of Science degree in Integrated Physiology in the Spring of 2019.
After my four years at Alma, I started to look for work. I eventually received a tip that there was an opening at The MAAC for personal training and desk work. It was like a dream come true. I applied for the job, and was hired shortly after. I am so grateful for this opportunity. I get to spend all of my time in an environment that I love, doing the things that I love.
I am looking forward to continuing my journey and helping to impact the live's of others here in the Clio community. Please keep me and the rest of The MAAC's team in mind when you are looking for fitness help.
