Growing up I always had a passion for sports mainly basketball and soccer however, it was not until 2016 when fitness and health started to become a new passion of mine. I made the decision to return to school in 2017 two years removed from completing my first diploma program. What sparked my interest to return was my new curiosity and love for fitness and health which would in turn become a passion for the science and theory behind everything fitness and health related. During my four-year return to education, I obtained a diploma, a degree along with certifications in both personal training and group training along with valuable experience working with athletes across many internships. The most important thing I learned over this time however is I want to stay in the fitness and health world and help other individuals reach their goals.
