Hometown: Ypsilanti, MI
I am going to Michigan State in the fall and I want to be a Special Education teacher after I graduate.
What got you into the fitness industry?
My former strength and conditioning coach Ryan Pratt was talking to me about what the human body can do and all of the different ways you can train it and it just blew me away. I was so fascinated with it.
I’d have to say nibbling on my mom’s left over food before she officially says she doesn’t want it.
“Get comfortable being uncomfortable.”
My mom hands down. She amazes me with the things she’s been able to overcome and achieve while raising two grown boys on her own.
Getting to play football at MSU. Sparty on!

If you could only eat one meal for the rest of your life, what would it be?
My mom’s fried chicken. It’s sooo good.
Hometown: Ann Arbor, MI
I recently graduated from Corcoran School of the Arts, George Washington University, BFA in Motion Design!
I graduated from school in May and found myself back in Ann Arbor while I continue taking a couple animation courses. I had never worked in the fitness industry before, but I’ve always enjoyed an active lifestyle and was involved with a lot of different sports growing up (my favorite being soccer and gymnastics). Joining AFS, I am very excited to be working with others who are just as– if not more so–passionate about fitness.
Reading, nonstop. I will sacrifice whatever amount of sleep I have to in order to finish a good book or get to the end of a chapter. It will keep me up all night but I cannot stop without knowing what happens next.
The closest friends you’ll ever have…that provide free food.
My mom. She’s a rockstar and is always there for me.
Proudest accomplishment was finishing a Tough Mudder in September: 10 miles of mud and obstacles. Hardest thing I’ve ever done but can’t wait to do one again.
I was interested in working somewhere that values teamwork and positivity, and Applied Fitness Solutions has that in spades.
I am inspired by people all day everyday. Some of my biggest inspirations are my friends. They are all doing such amazing work!
