Short biography

What are you most passionate about in your work? What motivates you?

My passion in my work is simple: Seeing people succeed. In the classroom or in the weight room the best feeling is is when you can help someone else reach a goal or set new goals.

Are you willing to relocate?

I am single and do not have any children so relocating is not an issue for me.

Which coaching skills do you possess that set you apart from other coaches?

My skill set is in the realm of free weights and power lifting. I do have a Masters degree in Kinesiology and will soon have my CSCS.

Where do you see yourself in your career in 5 years?

I hope to be running a strength and conditioning program.

Tell us about a coach you've worked with who has mentored you or a coach you've learned from online.

I had a coach that early on in my powerlifting career mentored me in numerous ways. The biggest thing he taught me is that listening to my athlete is important. Making adjustments to meet each individual instead of just doing a canned program.

What are your values as a coach that differentiate you from others?

I feel that my 20 years of teaching and coaching is what sets me apart. I have experience working with individuals of all ages and that allows me to have the communication skills necessary to work with anyone.

Which certification or seminar has had the biggest impact on your coaching skills?

I have learned a lot from Dr. John Rusin and his Pain Free Sports Performance seminars. I hope to become certified through his program soon.

What Specialty Programs can you create for your new facility?

I have the ability to help create a strong strength program in a facility and a strong youth focused program.

Are you a military veteran?

I am not.
