I graduated from Messiah College with a B. S. in Applied Health Sciences with a concentration in Pre-Physical Therapy in 2015. I played Men’s Lacrosse for all four years, through which I began an interest in Strength and Conditioning coaching as I had opportunities to develop programs for the team. I began my coaching experience in the summer term for High Point University working with both Men’s and Women’s teams. I spent the most time with Lacrosse, Soccer, Basketball, Baseball, and Track and Field. This experience continued to nurture my passion for athletics as a whole, not just one specific sport. I love learning new intricacies of different sports and learning how to best help develop athletes in their specific sports. I have gone on to earn my Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist Certification from the National Strength and Conditioning Association as well as my Level 1 Sports Performance Certification from United States Weightlifting.
Outside of work, my interests are spread far and wide. I love to go out and compete in different sports and enjoy testing my limits by running in the occasional Tough Mudder. I am an avid reader, love to travel, and actively seek to deepen my personal faith journey. Lastly, I’m in the process of helping to plan my wedding with my beautiful fiancée Laura.
