It all started when…
After graduating college, I was looking for a career that didn’t involve wearing a suit or sitting in an office for 40 hours a week. A close friend mentioned that as a trainer/coach, you could wear sweatpants and athletic gear all day; I was immediately sold. I also interned with the University of Oregon’s strength and conditioning program while in school and after working with their football and track and field teams, I was inspired to become a strength/performance coach. Over the past few years, I learned that coaching is much less about training and more about developing relationships and educating your clients, which is where I truly found my passion.
What I specialize in: I specialize in general strength and performance training. It’s all about mastering the basics – I enjoy teaching beginners how to build a strong foundation they can build upon for years to come.
Things I do for fun: Aside from being an avid Ducks and Blazers fan, I enjoy reading, listening to podcasts, exploring nature, and eating good food in my free time.
