I attended the National Personal Training Institute and became a NASM certified personal trainer in 2014 and actively continue my fitness education while currently holding specializations in Nutrition, Youth Fitness, Autism Fitness, Core Training, Anatomy of Running and Fit Kids for Life; focusing on combating childhood obesity. I recently received my certification as a Level 1 Autism Fitness Coach. I enjoy my career using Applied Behavioral Analysis as a Behavioral Support Specialist and this Autism Fitness Certification bridges both my personal training and Applied Behavioral Analysis degree. This certification combines the complex intersection of Applied Behavioral Analysis, Learning Styles & Systems in Education and Exercise Sciences, that together forms the underlying functional framework of Autism Fitness. This included exploring Autism's medical history, symptoms, and evidence based strategies to overcome known developmental deficits, plus unique ways to adapt fitness programming to meet these unique needs. When not working I enjoy running races and playing tennis in my downtime and hope to add tennis coach certifications to my specialties in the future.
