June, 2014 marks the culmination of several year’s work for me. I graduated from Western Washington University with a Bachelor of Science degree in Kinesiology with a Specialization in Movement Studies. In March, 2014 I was awarded and also graduated as a NASM certified personal trainer. Having played sports for recreation and on teams for my whole life, I understand that every individual will be motivated differently. My internship in Gainesville, Florida at Go Primal Fitness and Training Institute helped shape my views and ignite my passion for training and helped define my motivation for becoming a fitness professional. All of these experiences have influenced my views on health and fitness and understanding that it is more than just the physical aspect of exercise and activity. My mission as a fitness professional is to provide the highest quality, scientifically sound, services and education for optimal improvement in the quality of life and health that can be provided to my clients by continuing to educate myself and hone my skills at my craft to maintain the utmost level of ability and knowledge.
