Originally hailing from Redlands, CA and attended Redlands East Valley HS.

I earned my BS in Athletic Training at Fresno State in 2013. I moved to Akron, OH to earn my MS in Exercise Physiology/Adult Fitness at the University of Akron, graduating in 2015. While at UA I served as a graduate assistant to the Department of Sports Medicine and worked with the softball team. I enjoy hiking, being outside, and exercise. I enjoy coming to work to hear about academic and athletic accomplishments of each of the students that come into the sports medicine clinic. I look forward to continuing to make a positive impact on the students of Adams 12 Five Star Schools through knowledge, understanding, and education.
