I realize that my rate may be more expensive than others, but the results you will gain will save you money in the future.

I am currently pursuing my Master's Degree in Exercise Physiology from San Diego State University. Completing course work in Physiology, Nutrition, Chemistry, Physics, Anatomy, Biology and much more, I am more than suited to assist in your science needs.

Most recently, I was employed as an Advanced Health and Fitness Instructor for Bryan University in Los Angeles, California as well as at Youngstown State University in Youngstown, Ohio in the Exercise and Nutrition Sciences major. I was responsible for designing the curriculum for a variety of classes including Anatomy and Physiology, Nutrition, Biomechanics and Proprioception, and many more. The enhanced curriculum paid tremendous dividends for the students and their overall grades.

My belief throughout the years in the fitness industry as well as the academic setting is to create solid relationships with those I have influenced, worked with, or associated with in some capacity. I have been employed by numerous professional, collegiate, private sector and academic institutions and have thrived in each setting because of my ability to communicate effectively with all different types of people. These effective communication skills have piggy backed my work ethic and dedication to my positions in a positive manner and have made me an asset at each job I have taken on.

Prior to relocating to California on April 15, 2010, I ran my own strength and conditioning business in both Boardman and Cincinnati, Ohio. This business provided me the opportunity to create my own work environment with respect to athlete and client workout programs, design and implement marketing plans to increase business, handle all aspects of financial considerations, keep informed about the latest fitness and sport’s business trends and create and grow relationships with area athletes, coaches, parents, physicians and physical therapists.

Immediately following college, I was employed by both the Los Angeles Dodgers and the Tampa Bay Rays as a strength and conditioning coach. This seasonal position required direct relationship with each player designing a workout program depending on their needs. These programs involved changes in anthropomorphic measurements, increased strength, speed, footwork, agility, power, and other baseball considerations. In addition to improved performance, I answered directly to the Major League Strength and Conditioning Coordinator as well as Dodger’s front office personnel.

I feel that my background is invaluable. I bring an extensive background in both strength and conditioning and academia. I am a consummate professional who will arrive on time, prepared and focused to accelerate your learning to the level you demand and deserve.

I appreciate your time and any potential opportunity.
