While pursuing my undergraduate degree in Exercise Science I spent three years immersed in the world of College Strength & Conditioning. I was a student intern for three years at the College of Charleston and completed a summer internship in 2012 with the University of South Alabama’s football program. Throughout my career I have worked with over 20 Men’s and Women’s Division 1 College teams. Some of which include Football, Basketball, Baseball, Soccer, Sailing, Cheer & Dance, and Track & Field.
While at the College of Charleston my responsibilities included teaching proper exercise technique, programming and implementing strength and conditioning workouts, and coaching speed, agility, mobility, and flexibility exercises. I assisted with every team in some capacity, and was the head Strength Coach for the Cheer & Dance team. I became USA Weightlifting certified in 2011, where I began to develop my skills as an Olympic Lifting Coach. I was responsible for developing and teaching the curriculum for first year S&C interns at the College of Charleston.
As an intern at the University of South Alabama I assisted the strength and conditioning coaches with all aspects of the football summer program including speed, agility, mobility, conditioning, power, and strength training. I also worked closely with the women’s volleyball team in implementing their strength training and conditioning workouts. My main role at South Alabama was to work with strength staff in coaching football workouts, teaching and critiquing exercise technique, especially when working with the freshmen class, to develop their skills in the weight room and to aid in speed and agility training. I also played a critical role in implementing the PCA functional movement screening tests with the football team.
I graduated from the College of Charleston in May of 2013. In August of 2013 I moved to Castle Rock from Charleston, South Carolina and became a Crossfit Level 1 Trainer in November of 2013. I am originally from Florida.
