I grew up in a small farm town in Ohio. Growing up I played a lot of sports, but primarily was interested in basketball. Most of my time outside of school was spent on a basketball court. I can’t say that there is any type of moment that helped me become the coach I am today. I’ve just genuinely enjoyed being a part of this community and if anything it has taken me from a “lead with your actions” type of person to a more outspoken leader (if you’re in my class you know I love to talk, sorry).
Going into college I had no idea what I was really going to do with my life. I was at a school away from home trying to play college basketball. I soon learned that being a 6’3” power forward wasn’t the most promising thing for me. I moved back home and needed to continue doing something to supplement my love for Mexican food, so I found CrossFit at a small gym in Canton. From that point on I knew my passion was in health promotion of some sort. Long story short I ended up being a registered nurse, but coaching a lot in my spare time.
At the end of the day the heavy lifts, high-level gymnastics, and other things are cool, but that’s not what I’m here for. I’m here for the people who want to be around to see their grandkids graduate, the people who are turning their life around physically, and those who want to play with their kids on a daily basis. That is my purpose for being here.
