Bio: When I graduated high school, I attended UW-Milwaukee to pursue a career in dance. However, this was cut short, due to painful, debilitating injuries suffered during my third year. After taking time off, I eventually earned a Bachelor of Science in Pre-Physical Therapy from UW-Stevens Point.
However, it was not until 2012 that my passion for fitness truly developed and took shape. I was involved in a car accident involving hospitalization and extensive rehabilitation for my injuries. After my accident, I sore to myself that I would do everything in my power to never feel as weak or as vulnerable as I did then. I adapted a personal trainer and began training in boxing, muay thai, strength training and high-intensity strength training circuits, and I haven’t look back since.
I am excited to be a part of the Adventure 212 team, and look forward to meeting all of you and discussing your fitness goals – whatever they may be!

Training Philosophy: There are no secrets to success. It is the result of preparation, hard work, and learning from failure. Constantly seek to improve yourself and embrace EVERY victory.
The Reason I Became a Personal Trainer: I love being in an environment where I am surrounded by individuals that are working to change and improve their lives. Who wouldn't’t want to be surrounded by that on a daily basis, and help them work towards that?
Why I'm So Passionate about Fitness: Fitness is my safe haven. Words cannot state all the positive impacts that it has had in improving my quality of life and character. I love listening to the personal journeys and stories shared by others, and look forward to helping you in your journey towards leading and maintaining a healthier, more fit lifestyle.
My Approach to Training People: Having a plan to reach desired outcomes is crucial, as it provides a road map to follow during your journey. A goal is worthless if you do not have a set, clearly defined plan.
The Most Important Aspect of Fitness: When you feel like giving up, remember WHY you STARTED….FIGHT FOR IT!
