My Philosophy

Finding the balance for both your mind and body is key. Why? I believe that health is a state of complete harmony of the body and mind. When one is free from mental and physical disabilities and distractions, one can then fully engage and immerse him or herself.

Born and raised in San Francisco, I began playing sports at a very young age. I was involved in volleyball, basketball, track and field, and tennis.  In high school, I was a 3-sport Varsity athlete and continued to excel in collegiate Track and Field, specializing in Javelin. Through various activities and injuries, I developed a greater sense of proprioception, speed, explosiveness, rhythm and timing, and rehabilitation. I have always found that eating well combined with exercise provided me a sense of euphoria and relaxation. This leads to a healthy body and mind, which I love to teach others.

Concurrently, I am employed as a Physical Therapist Aide, a Track and Field coach, as well as a strength and conditioning coach. My lifelong passion is to attend graduate school to become a Doctor of Physical Therapy in order to bridge the gap between performance and rehabilitation. One of my main goals is for clients to establish and build more kinesthetic awareness so that they can be in-tuned with their own bodies.
