B.S. Exercise Science
My love for exercise and fitness began at a young age competing year-round in sports, which has developed me into the person I am today. Throughout my childhood and through college, I was a competitive swimmer.
During my senior year of high school, I tore my ACL in a strength and conditioning course, which later led me to wonder why that happened. After that incident, I became intrigued with the body and how it works.
At Franklin College, I started as an exercise science student who had the hopes of becoming an athletic trainer, but as I continued my education, focusing on exercise science, I became intrigued with strength training movements and techniques. I graduated with my bachelor’s degree in exercise science and a minor in fitness in May 2021.
While studying at Franklin, I swam all four years. The team was undefeated for 40 dual meets and was the conference champion four years in a row. I have experienced a variety of different coaching techniques through personal experiences as an athlete and as a student. I currently am preparing for my personal training certification exam through the National Foundation of Personal Trainers, and then will focus on earning my certified strength and conditioning specialist certification through the National Academy of Sports Medicine.
My goal as a personal trainer is to help assist individuals to reach their goals, for them to become comfortable and confident in exercising, and to love exercise like I do. In my downtime, I enjoy bettering myself in the gym and spending time with my wonderful friends and family at the lake.
