Licensed Physical Therapy Assistant (OH)
I was fortunate enough to have been born with a foot that turned in and therefore my life was changed because the physicians recommended my parents enroll me in ballet. Dance instilled an appreciation for movement and sport. Growing up, I was in the local ballet company and I also enjoyed lifting weights and lifted with the football team in their off season. So, I enjoy fitness at both ends of the spectrum and many in between!
My fitness career began at Ohio State as a Buck-I-Robics Instructor and cheerleader in 1987. I have been an aerobics instructor and or personal trainer since that time. I have worked at the Continental Athletic Club (back in the day :D), The New Albany Country Club and now at Ultimate U as a fitness professional. My goal is to help people move better longer to maintain a happy, healthy active lifestyle throughout their lives. I went back to school and became a physical therapist assistant to broaden my skills and opportunities. I now work at Mount Carmel Sports Medicine and Rehab in addition to being part of the Ultimate U personal training team.
I train from a position of respect and care for my client and their current physical condition. We move forward together in order to achieve improved strength, mobility, function and body composition.
