I grew up in McMinnville Oregon. I was involved in sports from a very young age and was always involved in at least 2 or 3 activities at a time until 6th grade when my sole focus became swimming. After graduating high school in 2009, I went to the University of Tennessee to continue my swimming career. In 2011 I returned to Oregon and ended up transferring to Oregon State, where I finished my bachelor's degree. I love Oregon but I've always had a dream of living in the Seattle area and so I just recently moved to Bellevue became trainer for Shine.
I found a greater appreciation for strength training in college as a collegiate athlete and again this last year when I started working with a personal trainer. Prior to lifting, I was all about cardio and trying to control my physical body, but through training I have been able to transform my approach to exercise and enjoy the benefits of having more mental energy. I am beginning my career as a trainer to assist everyone I work with in experiencing the connection between working out in a gym and positive transformations in other areas of life.
Outside of work & working out, I enjoy hiking, swimming, and spending time with my dog. I love learning and reading about sports psychology and personal development.
I'm excited to be a part of Shine and I look forward to getting to know all of you more in the coming weeks and months!
