Hi-

Thank you for taking the time to learn a little about me!

I love helping people succeed in the classroom or with their own health and fitness because I know how school and exercise have benefited me in my life. Growing up, I did not speak until I was five and I was also clinically obese too. Yet, when I applied myself in school and learned how to diet and exercise, everything started to change for me. Now, I am a published author, college football coach and I enjoy public speaking.

More importantly, I know what a little success can do for a person; it can expand horizons and open up doors that may have seemed very unlikely of ever opening. On top of that, success breeds more success as Aristole says, 'Excellence is a habit.'

I am well skilled in the following areas:

* Physical Fitness and Exercise- I have coached and trained athletes and clients for over 13 years, helping people lose weight, build strength, improve mobility, manage stress and feel better! I love getting people active!

* Teaching English as a Second Language- I am certified with TESOL and have helped adults and children to write and speak better because I believe everyone can be self expressed!

* Public Speaking and Interpersonal Communication- In addition to earning a Bachelor's in Communications and a Master's in Acting, I teach people to have confidence and power when speaking in front of groups. I truly enjoying helping people overcome their fear of speaking in public!

On a personal note, I have been fortunate enough to have had some amazing teachers in my life, which is why I teach today.
