I began my career in health and healing within my own life. Participating in sports from a young age taught me commitment, drive, and passion for health. My drive for health led me to college athletics, where I became an NAIA D1 college athlete.
This passion for health and healing carried me into personal training. I first began training at the YMCA where I worked with a diverse population of clients. Among these clients were a range of people from youth to geriatric. I also have experience working with clients with both physical and mental disabilities. In training I found that each and every client felt a sense of fulfilment after learning that their obstacles are not keeping them from living a healthy lifestyle!
Eager to inspire a larger group of people, I then moved onto working at a planet fitness developing programs for all of the members and creating and conducting classes daily. My passion for health and drive allowed me to work past many challenges my clients faced whether they be mental or physical and help them to realize healing and health is a path for everyone! In doing this I became the top trainer for planet fitness’ in the state of Pennsylvania. Each class I taught inspired a single person to convince someone else they can obtain a healthy lifestyle, no matter their obstacles! This chain of healthy living has been one of my biggest achievements!
My passion for inspiring and truly helping each person in my life pushed me to pursue an education and career in massage therapy. Initially I pursued massage therapy to fully help my personal training clients and become a multifaceted educator in the field of health and fitness. I had no idea the level of influence massage could have on the mind and body, spiritually, physically, and mentally. The Community College of Allegheny County and its program director, Kevin Anderson, provided an extremely comprehensive background with extensive clinical practice. After graduating I pursued my own business, working with clients to develop a lifestyle of health through training and healing through massage.
Looking to expand myself through career and educational opportunities I joined Vita Massage. I am very pleased to be working with Vita Massage, including their staff and owners, who I have found to have that same level of passion for their clients.
