My Story…

I grew up knowing my mom would likely never meet her grandchildren. I hoped that she would be able to meet my future wife. By the time I was in college I prayed she would live long enough to see me graduate. ⁣

Like nearly 100 million Americans, my mom suffered with multiple chronic illnesses before passing away at 54 years old. ⁣

That was 15 years ago—losing my mom at such a young age led me to my career in fitness and shaped my philosophy on movement as preventative medicine.

My Story

When I started my finance program at Boston College I never imagined I would choose a career in fitness.  Everything changed my junior year on a spring break trip to Puerto Rico.   The vibrant colors and natural beauty was unlike anything I had ever experienced–I was overwhelmed with gratitude for the life I was afforded, .  I As a person of mixed race I struggled hard to find my identity but suddenly I felt like I belonged.     I had a manic episode and spent two weeks in a psychiatric hospital. I was diagnosed with Bipolar disorder and forced to withdraw from classes. Shortly after being readmitted to school, my mother was diagnosed with cancer and given six months to live; she passed away just before my final semester.

My experiences allow me to provide clients with more than fitness instruction. I am able to give emotional support, insight and perspective, all which are invaluable in helping clients overcome challenges, achieve goals and improve their quality of life.
