Early on as a Rutgers University student, I discovered my passion for exercise and became a group fitness instructor for both the Rutgers Recreation Center and nearby Johnson & Johnson’s World Headquarters Employee Fitness Centers in New Jersey. Ultimately, I turned fitness into a full-time profession in 2003 while living in San Francisco where I managed, instructed and personal trained at multiple fitness facilities, such as Equinox and Crunch.

In 2004, I met TRX CEO and founder Randy Hetrick and created TRX’s first-ever group fitness program. I joined TRX full time in 2007 to develop and run the company’s education department, and later opened the company’s first-ever Suspension Training studio (TRX Training Center) in San Francisco.

As a Global Senior Master Instructor for TRX, Life Fitness and Trigger Point, I conduct education courses for group fitness instructors, personal trainers, healthcare professionals and the military. I also conduct courses to help develop new course instructors, evaluating and fostering their development in delivering best-in-class education.

I present worldwide at a variety of conferences for these companies, including Italy, China, Canada, as well as Brazil and Mexico. I am multilingual and have conducted education trainings in Brazil and Mexico, in Portuguese and Spanish.

I have also recently been published in IDEA Journal on the topic of foam rolling and I continue to explore writing projects in order to share my expertise regarding fitness and group training.

I've been working in the fitness industry for over 20 years, and believe that no matter what tool or philosophy you choose to advocate, one thing remains steadfast: seek not only look to motivate at the moment, but to inspire for life.
