Hello, and I am very excited to be a part of the BBCT staff! I am a graduate from Grand Valley in 2017 receiving my degree in Exercise Science. Throughout my time, I completed an internship at the Helen Devos Children’s hospital working under an exercise physiologist and dietician. I created workouts for kids and developed a stronger understanding to help those lead healthier lives both in the gym and outside of it. Before my time here, I have also worked previously at both MVP and the YMCA as a personal trainer in the grand rapids area.
I have always been extremely passionate for sports at a young age, and still currently play and follow them when I can. But injuries have come and gone from my playing days. After a major setback tearing my ACL/MCL/Menisicus, it forced me to look at how I train and play differently. Even though it was a serious injury, I have never stopped playing and improving myself each step of the way always striving to be better than the day before. I want to encourage others to be the best that you can be, and to let no one step in the way of that. Anything is achievable if you set your mind to it!
