My professional philosophy about physical activity is that movement is life. Active individuals tend to be healthier, happier, and more successful. Therefore, my intentions are to have everyone that I come in contact with know the importance of physical activity, how to move properly, and most importantly how to enjoy exercise.  

As an intern in the Exercise Health Sciences Program at ACC, it is my objective to apply what I know about fitness to the field, and teach others how to build strength, move properly, get faster, manage weight and stress, boost energy, enhance mood, and how to become an overall healthier individual and life-long mover. My goal is for every single one of my clients to achieve desired results.

I am certified with the American College of Sports Medicine as a Personal Trainer and Group Instructor.
Contact me in the fitness center at ACC in room A1515, email me at, or call me at 303.797.5856.   

The interns will be available all semester in the fitness center for personal training, metabolic assessments, nutritional assessments and fitness assessments. You can find them in the fitness center office A1605 or reach them there at 303.797.5774.
