I have completed two years of classroom work towards my Doctorate degree in Physical Therapy and have attended two clinical rotations. Both of my clinical rotations were in an outpatient private practice setting. I have various experiences working with individuals coming off various injuries/surgeries including rotator cuff repairs, ACL repairs, lateral epicondylitis, Achilles tendinitis, Patellofemoral syndrome and low back pain. I also have experience working as a personal trainer at Dynamic Strength and Conditioning during my senior practicum while in the Exercise Physiology Program at UMass Lowell.
What got you interested in fitness and exercise?
I have always been very active and played soccer and baseball throughout high school. I have a passion for all sports and all of the various fitness components that go into making an athlete. I’ve always been undersized but through exercise and fitness I told myself that I wanted to make the best of what I was given and live and lead a healthy, active lifestyle.
Why did you want to become a personal trainer at Campus Recreation?
I wanted to work with the UMass Lowell student body, alumni, faculty and staff and give back to them for providing me the knowledge and experience that they have given me over the past 7 years. I feel that I have a lot of knowledge and experience that I can share with each client I work with at Campus Recreation.
What is your philosophy on fitness?
Set your goals, be patient, learn and enjoy the ride to achieving all your fitness/exercise desires.
What are some of your hobbies and other interests?
