" I am a certified Exercise Physiologist through American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM). I received my Master's Degree in Exercise Science at Cleveland State University. I grew up in Ashland (Proud Hillsdale Falcon) and moved to the Cleveland area after graduation to attend Baldwin Wallace University for my Bachelor's Degree. I recently moved home after six years away because the city life was not cutting it for me ;). I am so excited to meet you and work with you at Strive Health Fitness to help you reach and exceed your goals!"

I have been involved in fitness for 5 years and grew a passion for it. I have competed in two bikini competitions and am an ISSA Certified Personal Trainer.

Fitness programs I have to offer are weight loss, muscle gain, strength/conditioning, nutritional guidance, or for some looking to incorporate a more active lifestyle.
