I’m a Type 1 Diabetic that was diagnosed at the age of 16. It led me to want to go down the career of health in some way. My background in sports made me want to do strength and conditioning coaching. I did coaching at the college level, but life experiences made me shift my focus. I was in a car crash from hypoglycemia and got 4 fractures, which left me with chronic pain and arthritis in my hip at age 27. I decided to become an exercise physiologist to help serve those and show what a physically active lifestyle can look like with any condition . Even with my injuries and diabetes I still do Spartan Races, half marathons, and I plan on doing an Ironman in the future.
