"In my first 6 years of working as a physical therapist and owning my own clinic, I was dedicated to have every patient feel an unconditional sense of encouragement, support and expertise. I truly loved creating long-lasting, trustworthy relationships with my patients. 

In addition I spent 5 years coaching and learning about movement and kettlebell strength training at a gym called Gymnasia in West Newton and Waltham, MA. I was fortunate enough to witness the power of proper movement from Josh Conway, who is Gymnasia's founder, as well as from all of Gymnasia's movement coaches. My appreciation for finding ways to harness group motivation to help foster individual growth was born!  

I am proud to have taken the two passions above and found a way to meld them together. To evolve the rehab world to a modern and effective way to recover with community and self-empowerment. And to give the members of the fitness community the tools they need to feel their strongest, perform to their best, and surpass their goals!"
