GET TO KNOW ME
My main career goal is to educate as many people as possible on how to accomplish their fitness goals safely. To achieve this, I have committed to a lifetime process of learning the most current research on strength and conditioning, physical therapy, and nutrition. I grew up playing sports in Westford, MA and started to develop a passion for sports medicine while seeing injuries from teammates during those years. Intrigued by the rehabilitation process, I wanted to study physical therapy, so I did just that. I earned my B.S in Exercise Physiology with a minor in Nutrition in 2017 from UMASS Lowell, where I fell in love with both exercise and nutrition. I continued my studies there and earned my Doctorate in Physical Therapy (DPT) in 2020. While pursuing my doctorate, I also gained my Certified Strength & Conditioning Specialist (CSCS) credentials in 2019.

Early on in my undergraduate years is when I started to train myself. After high school sports, I wanted to become involved with fitness to develop and maintain my own physique. As I learned more with my studies, I realized that there is a lot of good and bad information that is being falsely advertised to people. I wanted to get to the bottom of this and start educating people one by one on my beliefs on both exercise and nutrition. I interned at a well known strength and conditioning gym, IPF, where I learned the foundational elements of functional lifting and exercise prescription. After this valuable experience, I started to create my own programs for myself and Jill, where we would experiment with different exercise variables and see what worked best. Adding in the nutritional element to working out was also really starting to make a difference with how we looked aesthetically. The harder we worked for it in both the gym and the kitchen, the better the results. It was that simple.

Once I formed a solid foundation in exercise and nutrition, I felt like I was missing a major piece of the puzzle - what happens when I have an injury or am dealing with pain? This was my focus during my graduate studies and continues to be implemented in my everyday life where I learn how to communicate with patients on how to manage their pain and move both functionally and safely while getting back to the activities they enjoy. This field has a lot of unknowns, and the information will always continue to be updated with new evidence-based research. It is my job to keep up with the current research and educate as many people as possible on rehab, fitness, and nutrition. If I can help people enhance their longevity with a healthy lifestyle, then I will have succeeded with my career.

If you are looking to make sustainable lifestyle changes and need help in the fitness, nutrition, and/or rehab department, then I am your girl! Let's train hard!
