I am grateful for the opportunity to work at the Factory and learn from some incredible trainers. My main goal is to be prepared to meet any and every individual needs my clients may have. I always work to earn people's trust and willingness to work with me; to do so, I make it a priority to maintain a personal goal to always better myself by taking every opportunity to learn and challenge myself as both a trainer and an athlete. I am a firm believer in practicing what you preach. It is an incredible feeling to be trusted to work with others, playing a huge role in helping them recover their strength and power.
