As a previous student athlete at UCI I have had many different trainers from rehab to weight training. I have coached several different groups of cross country athletes. I have participated as an occupational therapy volunteer at Karate For All in Tustin that focused on children with disabilities.


I was a student athlete for three years here at UCI competing in Cross Country and Track and Field. Prior to that I had been competing at a high level for a club before entering high school. I am very competitive, living an active lifestyle. I have participated in almost all sports throughout high school and club sports at UCI.
Educating others on muscle physiology and goal setting.
I love to run and have for many years. I embrace every moment of the journey from just starting out to the moments just before a race.


I believe that everything we do comes down to our mindset and attitude towards our goals. I want you to find your goal and remind yourself that each and every accomplishment is one to be proud of. I strive to help you create a healthier lifestyle by teaching you the basic mechanics to move forward and learning to embrace the journey to reach your goals. Consistency is key!!
