Professional background leading to career in health and wellness: 

Having played soccer at a high level growing up including the Olympic Development Program, sports and recreational activities were always a large part of my life. After accepting an appointment to the Merchant Marine Academy for soccer, I tore my ACL (a main ligament in your knee) and required physical therapy myself for over a year. I knew from that point on this is a career that I would love.

What reasons you are passionate about helping others: 

I am passionate about helping others because it allows them to stay connected to people/activities they love while feeling happy, satisfied, and fulfilled.

What do you enjoy in your free time:

As an amateur triathlete, I enjoy swimming, biking, and running. I also enjoy good food, traveling local and abroad, and absolutely love a good bottle of wine. Any time with friends, family, and loved ones is absolutely the best!!!
