Current Role Working With The Athletic PopulationI currently work as a Doctor of Physical Therapy and trainer at Evolution Healthcare and Fitness.
Professional PhilosophyI believe that strength training is at the heart of all athletic performance and is necessary to maintain and reach new goals, as well as rehabilitate from injuries. I also believe that rest is key for proper gains and rehab and is imperative for an athlete. It takes an individualized program with proper load and rest to reach the goals we have in strength training.
Athletic BackgroundI was a competitive athlete through high school and then switched to individual training. I am a trail runner and rock climber and strength train to increase my performance ability.
Academic Background and Professional Training
I graduated from the University of St. Augustine in 2012 with my Doctorate in Physical therapy and then followed that with my Manual Therapy Certification from USA as well in 2013. I am also a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist with the NCSA.
