I found my love for fitness at a young age through participating in multiple sports and living an active lifestyle. At the age of 17, I was recruited to swim on scholarship for Cal Poly State University, San Luis Obispo at a NCAA Division One level. With my background and passion for fitness I decided to pursue an education in Kinesiology with a focus in exercise science. The characteristics obtained from being an athlete aided in my studies, and my education was then applied to my own fitness career. Learning about the importance of an active lifestyle and the benefits of exercise and nutrition, created a passion outside of the classroom and into my own daily life. It is my personal goal to aide and encourage others in pursuing their own fitness and lifestyle goals, and to create an environment where all are welcome and comfortable in their own skin. I will be graduating March 2018 with a B.S. in Kinesiology/ Exercise Science and will continue my education and my career in the fitness world.
