My background is a bit different. I'm a Johnson & Wales graduate with a culinary and restaurant management degree. I have 10+ years of restaurant management experience, which if anyone knows, is one extremely stressful job. I've always looked for different ways to unwind from the job. So, back in March of 2014 I took my first Orangetheory workout and finally found what worked for me and had been a premier member ever since. During the summer of 2015 I realized that my passion for the restaurant life had faded and I knew I needed a change. I am now Studio Manager and able to say... I LOVE WHAT I DO!!! Who gets to say that? Never though I would... Thanks OTF
I fell in love with fitness during my own weight loss journey, motivating myself, through interval training, to lose 85lbs. Through that journey I became hooked on learning all about fitness, I'm more the performance junkie, always wanting to test myself. I studied Brazilian jui jitsu and mma for many years and helped teach strength and conditioning for some of our fighters in camp. I found Orangetheory Fitness 2 years ago and fell in love with the class immediately. I needed to be apart of it more becoming a trainer as soon as I could, and have loved motivating clients through their journey. "I Can and I Will"
