Her fields of study as her interests change, she experiences new activities, and as the needs of her clients evolve.
"My training comes from both sports and fitness. As an athletic trainer and strength and conditioning specialist I evaluate movement and performance.

I combine skills in injury prevention and rehab, corrective exercise, and sheer enjoyment to help clients reach individual goals."
