I was born and raised in Pelham, Alabama. I have lived in Alabama my whole life, except from 4-5 years old, when my parents decided to move to Jacksonville, Florida. Thankfully, our house in Pelham never sold, and we eventually moved back home!
In 2013, I moved to Tuscaloosa and attended Shelton State, where I gained my Associates in Applied Science (Health and Wellness Management). During my final year there, I also got my ACE Personal Trainer Certification and began training at Strong, Inc.
Growing up, I was always very active and loved practically all sports (except for baseball; I tried once when I was 5 and realized it wasn’t for me, so I spent most games looking for four-leaf clovers). I played football and soccer for a long time, but what I loved most were “action sports”. Most days, I probably spent more time on a skateboard, bicycle, or dirt bike than I did on my feet. I think that’s why I came to love weight-lifting. I thoroughly enjoyed team sports, but I’ve always loved the feeling of having to hold myself accountable, and I feel that self-motivation drives me more than anything.
I'm currently 23 years old and have been deeply in love with fitness since the day I stepped foot in Gold's gym over eight years ago. This quickly began to instill a drive in me to learn all that I could about weightlifting, nutrition, etc. I had no clue that this passion would grow so much and lead me to where I am. I cannot thank God enough for such a beautiful gift!
So now, I’m using all of this to help as many people as I can improve physically and mentally, so that they can become the strongest, happiest versions of themselves that they can be!
PERSONAL MISSION STATEMENT
Life can be crazy, with ups and downs, and plenty of curve balls. Sometimes it feels like it’s flying past you before your eyes, and sometimes like it’s so stagnant that it’s growing stale.. But no matter what, we are always in control of our thoughts, our beliefs, our actions, and therefore, our overall experience and well-being. To take control of these aspects is to take control of our own destiny. It all starts with taking full charge of our health; because then, there is nothing that can hold us back from making our lives as amazing as we want it to be!
