M.S. Health Promotion, Licensed Health Insurance Broker, National Academy of Sports Medicine (NASM)- Certified Personal Trainer, NASM- Corrective Exercise Specialist, NASM- Performance Enhancement Specialist
Health and fitness has always been a lifelong passion. As a teenager, I lost my father to a heart attack because of lifestyle habits. From that moment on, I made a commitment to myself to live a healthy lifestyle and to help those around me do the same. As a student-athlete, I earned a degree in exercise science. With the desire to make an impact beyond sports and address population health, I earned an advanced degree in health promotion. Both areas of study were key to redefining my passion. My purpose is to empower others to improve their mind, body, and spiritual health.
I am a licensed health insurance agent and a health promotion consultant. I have over a decade of experience helping individuals, workplaces, communities, and athletic teams achieve their health & exercise science goals through evidence-based strategies. This includes program design and evaluation for community events, employee wellness initiatives, personal training & group training at Life Time, and performance coaching for various sport athletes and Memphis 901FC. I volunteer my time as a youth mentor and serve as a National Wellness Institute Multicultural Competency Committee member.
My mantra is "Commitment + Consistency = Results."
Over the years, I've shared insight related to fitness and sports performance with various media outlets.
