An Ohio native, I studied theater at Youngstown State University and caught the acting bug that would, years later bring me to New York City.
In 1984, I joined the Army and for 6 years worked as a Behavioral Science Specialist at Fort Sill, Oklahoma in the Social Work Department of Reynolds Army Community Hospital.
In 1990, I came to New York to study at The American Academy of Dramatic Arts. I also began working as a personal trainer at The Soho Training Center and started my own personal training business.
Since then I have been a student of the body. Learning how to strengthen and build muscle. Discovering ways to prevent and rehabilitate injury. Developing training programs for people of all ages and abilities.
I am CPR certified and insured. I hold current certifications in the following organizations:
- American Council on Exercise
- Aerobic and Fitness Association of America
- Pilates Institute of America
