Education: Bachelor’s Degree in Exercise Science from Huntington University
Certifications: Level 3 trainer
Short Background/Bio: I have worked at PTI since August 2016. I graduated from Huntington University where I played soccer and am currently in graduate school for physical therapy. I will graduate from Trine University DPT in May 2020.
Personal Fitness/Nutrition Goals: My fitness goal is to incorporate more cardio into my work outs and to cut body fat.
Favorite Exercise and Least Favorite: Squats are my favorite exercise at PTI. I have always preferred lower body exercises and the squats at PTI always leave me feeling the burn and knowing exactly what muscles were worked. My least favorite exercise is push-ups. Push-ups truly reveal my weakness and have always been the most difficult for me.
Hobbies/ Outside of Work: I love spending time with my 3 sisters and nieces and nephew. I try to play soccer whenever I get the chance and enjoy reading.
Quote: I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength- Philippians 4:13
Future Plans: I will graduate with my Doctorate in Physical Therapy in 2020. I plan to get a job working in neuro PT and plan to stay in the Fort Wayne area.
Best Part of My Job: I love the interactions with clients. I enjoy getting to spend 30 minutes with the clients, getting to know them while working hard to reach their fitness and health goals.
Anything specific want clients to know: Showing up to appointments is half the battle. You will always leave here feeling better than when you walked in and all the trainers and front desk girls are great to interact with while you are here!
