My personal training career began in 2008 when I attended the National Personal Training Institute where I received my first training certification. Since then I have gone on to complete my BA in Exercise Physiology and Health Promotion from Otterbein University as well as pursuing other fitness and sports certifications/education through USA Weightlifting and the American College of Sports Medicine.

I was training at a large fitness facility for a few years and started to realize the large gym environment wasn’t for everyone.  After getting feedback from clients I decided to set out on my own in 2012 and work with people in their own homes and at small studios.  In 2014 I joined with my wife to form Willow Health and Performance, together we offer a wider range of health, diet and fitness expertise.

From 2014-2018 I returned to Otterbein as adjunct professor to teach Strength and Conditioning and Olympic Style Weightlifting. These additional years in an academic setting gave me the opportunity to refine my knowledge and to stay current on new developments in exercise science. I stay active working out, hiking, kayaking and training/competing in Brazilian jiu jitsu with Endeavor BJJ.

I have a passion for helping people sift through the plethora for nutrition information to find what is relevant and effective for them. Nutrition can help you gain confidence in yourself to be able to pursue the things you want to achieve in life and feel good doing it but it should not be an added stressor to our already busy lives. I will help you learn how to reach your goals without feeling like you are in a constant battle with food. 

It has been my pleasure to work with clients of all types including women throughout their pregnancy journey, those with eating disorders, athletes, those struggling with weight management, and those working through a medical condition. I enjoy working with anyone interested in bettering their health and willing to put in hard work for long term success.

In addition to my role as dietitian with Willow Health and Performance I also personal train clients vitrually in the comfort of their own home. I have a passion for fitness and take every advantage I can to get outside. I enjoy hiking, traveling, and gardening in my free time.
