I have a strong background in sports, specifically basketball, where I won three city championships while attending St. John's Prep High School. Basketball has allowed me to travel the country as an athlete in the AAU league. My love for fitness, sports, and teamwork has led me to a career in personal training, where I can use my knowledge and skills to help others.
I’m a lifelong New Yorker, currently studying business at Baruch College. I’ve spent a over 250 hours serving the NYC community—from making food for the homeless to helping young children complete their homework. After working as a front desk associate at 92Y’s fitness center, I became a fitness concierge. I’ve always had a passion for weightlifting, and competed in two National Physique Committee (NPC) shows.
I’m a 2017 graduate from Barry University with a bachelors in Sports, Exercise and Performance Psychology. I’m also three-time Division 1 North Eastern Conference Championship athlete and NCAA tournament contender. With my future studies, I aspire to become an exercise expert with a strong focus in the psychological studies of elite and professional athletes.
Health and fitness are the foundation of my life, and spreading their benefits has become my passion. Through my own personal experiences, I know the value of exercise done safely and correctly. It should help people achieve their health goals and become a lifelong endeavor. My goal is to create a comfortable, educational and physically challenging experience for my clients, giving them a sense of accomplishment.
Formerly an attorney, I privately trained clients on a part-time basis for about 3 years before joining the May Center team. I am a NASM-certified trainer with specializations in strength/balance training and sports conditioning (soccer, tennis, boxing). When I’m not training clients or on the gym floor assisting members, you could find me in the boxing room working out with the battle ropes.
I grew up in Central New York’s Greater Binghamton area. Began wrestling at the age of 8 and did so all through college, which brought me into the world of fitness. The performance benefits and confidence fitness gave me throughout my athletic career led me to pursue and earn a Bachelors of Science degree in Kinesiology from SUNY Brockport, as well as attain my NASM personal training certification. Shortly thereafter, I moved to NYC to pursue my fitness career.
In addition to being certified personal trainer, I want to further my education and understanding of the human movement system, exercise philosophies and training methods. As your trainer, I aim to help you reach all of your fitness and health goals. Exercise is, and should always be, a positive, fun and uplifting experience.
Family and fitness are at the forefront of everything I do. My philosophy is that exercise should be a part of your everyday life and never be boring. I grew up playing sports and enjoyed every second of it, never once thinking of it as fitness. Now as a mom, I enjoy running after my son and showing the same philosophy by example. As a personal trainer, my goal is to help you achieve your goals by incorporating challenging and fun techniques into your routine.
I’m a native Texan and have been living in NYC since August 2016, where I’ve been working to develop my voice as an artist. I graduated Magna Cum Laude, Phi Beta Kappa, from Muhlenberg College in Allentown, PA where I was awarded a BA in Dance & Psychology. Over the past year and a half, I’ve been performing and choreographing dance pieces, and my work has been showcased both in the Lehigh Valley and New York City. I’m an ACE-certified personal trainer and love working with clients of all ages.
I have experience in strength training, weight loss, sports performance, senior fitness, and pre- and post-natal training. I’m also a women’s figure competitor, so I may know a few things about staying motivated and focused and pushing beyond limits.
I’ve been dancing since the age of 5, and still perform professionally in and around NYC. I came to fitness as a way to expand my knowledge and understanding of the body. Within my first year of training, I acquired STRONG by Zumba and AFFA Group Fitness instruction certifications . I’m eager to continue learning and growing in the fitness industry.
I was born and raised in Staten Island, NY. I was always an energetic kid and being active has always been a part of my life. I grew up playing sports like soccer, softball, football, track and—one of the loves of my life—basketball (deep, I know). I have created some of the strongest relationships throughout my life through these various activities and after several years of personal training, I've come to realize that it's my purpose to connect and impact lives through fitness and health.
I became a personal trainer after spending a good deal of time rehabbing a shoulder and back injury that occurred during my college baseball years. After realizing that strength training and corrective exercise were great for the body, I found there were still missing components in my emerging wellness formula. That’s when I decided to become certified as a holistic lifestyle coach to teach clients how to make lasting changes, as well as live a well-balanced lifestyle—in and out of the gym.
I specialize in muscle-gain, senior fitness, corrective exercise, and functional fitness.
In addition to opening new doors through my fitness journey, the experience of becoming a personal trainer has been notably interesting. My clients’ diversity informed my certification focus to include several fitness modalities. This motivation led me to earning my Autisim Fitness certification. I have built a program at 92Y for populations with special needs. My ultimate goal is to ensure all my clients enjoy their training sessions, are gratified with their results, stay motivated to live healthy lives, and to find their smiles.
One of my growth drivers during my four years as a trainer at 92Y has been the opportunity I received to work with a broad range of populations. I’ve developed a strong interest in training younger people and subsequently earned my my certification in youth fitness. I’ve also had the opportunity to lead small-group training classes for 92Y Camps during summers. My growth and development at 92Y has been amazing, and I appreciate the hard work and dedication from the entire team.
I have a Master's in Exercise Physiology and Nutrition from Columbia University. I am the coordinator of the 92Y Cardiac Rehab Program. My background focuses on enabling individuals with physical challenges to have a regular cardiovascular, strength training, and flexibility exercise program that they can maintain throughout life.
I battled with poor eating habits and an unhealthy lifestyle while growing up, which resulted in me being over 300 pounds. After losing over 100 pounds during the course of a year in my twenties, people took note of my transformation and then began to ask me to help them reach their fitness goals. More than ten years later (and still 100 pounds lighter), I couldn’t be happier helping others achieve fitness success.
