Team sports and fitness became a major interest in my life as I played football, basketball and ran track throughout high school. As I entered college I became increasingly more interested in the science behind these activities and how a person could improve and excel in them. I graduated from the University of Colorado Boulder with a degree in integrative physiology and fell even more in love with the functions of the body especially under exercise conditions. During my time at CU, I was an undergraduate teaching assistant for Exercise Physiology and able to experience and observe many different conditions that exemplified how truly amazing the human body is. This continues to push me to keep learning but also transformed into a want to pass this knowledge onto others, to help them improve their lives, and encourage people to truly LIVE.

I believe that with a positive attitude and a willingness to give the absolute best, a person can accomplish anything. Being surrounded by other positive attitudes and determined individuals only intensifies this and that is why I believe team training is truly invaluable. The foundation I believe should build on is, “nothing is better than your best, but your best will make you better.” The environment the Red Zone has is the perfect place to find your best, helping others to find theirs and push you to reach for the better.

Outside of the Red Zone I’m usually snowboarding, backpacking, hiking, playing sports, watching sports, or reading. I always love trying new things and am always looking for the next adventure.
