I have earned a Bachelor's degree in Sport Management-Wellness and Fitness and a Master's degree in Exercise Science, both from California University of Pennsylvania. I entered this field with the sole purpose of helping others reach their fitness and wellness goals. Through the Sharecare venue, I am able to help even more individuals enjoy a lifetime of good health.
In addition to operating my personal training business, I work as an adjunct faculty member at CalU and also at Waynesburg University where I teach in the Exercise Science departments.
I enjoy a variety of activities; running, swimming, walking my Golden Retriever, traveling with my family, and reading. I can honestly say that I'm a much better swimmer than I am a runner. Unfortunately, I have limited accessibility to a pool. I have competed in many 5k races, 1/2 marathons, and even a few triathlons. I am currently training for the Pittsburgh Half-Marathon. And I must admit, it is coming up fast; May of 2012.
