Health & Fitness Trainer Highlight: HUNTINGTON BEACH & NEWPORT-MESA FAMILY YMCA’S
I was born and raised in Trenton, NJ and moved to southern California over 8 years ago. I have always been active and played sports my entire life. I originally intended to have a career as Marriage and Family Therapist after completing a BA in Psychology from Rutgers University and an MA in Clinical Psychology from Argosy University, but after working and studying in the field for over 10 years, I decided that my passion and love was in the fitness industry. I changed focus because exercising had a significantly positive impact on my health and well-being, much more so than any other therapy or medication. I wanted to share my knowledge and experiences with others to help them in the same respect. Therefore, I attended CNI College and received a diploma in personal training and became certified by the NSCA and have been working in fitness for the past 3 years. I work out regularly and continuously strive to learn new techniques and programs. I’ve also trained and completed several mini-triathlons and races.
