MS, NSCA, FM | Fitness Professional
Personal trainer Andersonville
I recently graduated with a master's degree in exercise physiology from Southern Illinois University Edwardsville. I attended my undergraduate university, Purdue Northwest, as a cross-country and track athlete, with the intention of Physical Therapy. I eventually began shadowing and interning for the university's strength and conditioning specialist and became more interested in enhancing human performance. In the past few years, I have worked in many different aspects in the fitness field, such as interning with the NCAA DI athletic performance coaches of SIUE, working as a personal trainer and personal trainer supervisor, and working as a track and field coach. As an NSCA certified personal trainer and Functional Movement Screen certified, I am thrilled to bring my human performance philosophy to Orange Shoe Andersonville
