I have trained for and completed multiple triathlons (swim bike run)
Through my college journey I chose anything that allowed me to avoid human science. I was never interested in anything science related until I found myself at massage therapy school as a means to an end simply to maintain ‘student status’ in order to stay on my parents’ insurance. What I found was God’s way of leading me to my passion; the human body. For the first time in my life I found myself excited to wake up and go to class. I could not get enough of how this unique machine works and to learn the ability to manipulate and mold it to achieve its best performance.
Upon completing massage therapy school I found a career but also a thirst for a deeper understanding of how this body works. After working in the field for three years I enrolled into Winthrop University within the Exercise Science major. I obtained my bachelor’s degree and moved to Nashville two weeks before my final semester. I needed an internship and was connected to Corley Roberts who is the founder and CEO of MyFitScript™. She introduced me to the direction I chose to take my career. I have a passion to help those who thrive for and hold a need to incorporate exercise and other healthy lifestyle changes into their life in order to optimize their daily life.
Through my career I have been able to develop exercise programs for individuals ranging from healthy and wanting to gain better strength to those with extreme limitations and bound to a wheelchair due to fibromyalgia and or multiple sclerosis. I absolutely love my job. I get to help other people understand their body and know how to push themselves to gain change, optimize their health and enhance their quality of life.
