BSc: Nutrition and Dietetics Degree from Acadia University

NSCA-CSCS,-CPT

In 2013, I received my Bachelor of Sciences Degree in Nutrition and Dietetics from Acadia University. While at Acadia I played Football as a LB for two years and DE for 2 years. Playing football was an incredible experience that I will take with me for the rest of my life! Through my football career I was given the privilege to be trained and critiqued by elite coaches and instructors. I learned a great deal on sport specific training as well as fun and unique exercises which are great for all fitness levels. Leaving University, I knew I wanted to be on a career path where I could help others better themselves. This led me to becoming a Personal Trainer! Now as a seasoned Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist myself, I use a combination of the knowledge I gained through my training experience, athletic career, and the resources and motivational tools I developed through my Nutrition degree to create a safe, effective, and individually challenging exercise regime for my clients. I value having a fun and honest training environment where hard-work and full effort is expected. I have found this better leads to continued progress and an overall improvement in quality of life. I feel as though I am a great coach for the inactive individual and experienced athlete alike, both looking to lose weight or gain muscle!!

Outside of the gym I spend most of my time with my fiancé. If we are not out on a hike or doing yoga or playing sports, then typically we are in the kitchen! We try to walk the walk of healthy living and have found that progress is like climbing a mountain. It is never easy and there is always a chance to stumble, but the higher you climb the sweeter the view! My future goals are to keep learning as much as possible to become a better mentor and athlete. I also, eventually want to go back to school to complete a Masters Degree in Human Nutrition!

“Building better habits is a skill and just like any skill, building habits requires practice.”

Good personal trainers help you build a habit you’ll keep for life. After all, becoming a different person means doing things with which you may not be comfortable at first.
