Coach

Exercise, athletics and competition have been a constant in my life since I could walk. I picked up Olympic Weightlifting at age 13 (though haphazardly) as a complement to football and wrestling. Soon thereafter, football and wrestling became complements to weightlifting. From that platform I have competed and medaled in multiple National competitions around the United States including the Junior National Championships, National Championships and the American Open.  I have also qualified and competed internationally for Team USA. I began coaching the sport in college and have since fallen in love with seeing others do and complete things they never saw possible. Having lifted under and coached under 6 different level 5 international coaches, I have had the opportunity to learn and see many different styles of programming and coaching.
