I was born and raised in Santa Paula, Ca. Growing up I was always involved in sports. I played Recreation softball as well as basketball. I was heavily involved in playing softball year-round, traveling to many cities and out of state. In high school I played volleyball, basketball and softball. After high school I went on and played softball for Ventura College. As you can see sports have always been a HUGE part of my life. I am a very competitive person who strives to be the best in whatever it is that I am doing. I’ve coached in multiple sports in both recreation and high school levels and I now get the pleasure to see my 5-year-old son begin the sports life that I so heavily enjoyed playing myself. My passion for sports and fitness lead me here to World Gym, where I absolutely LOVE my job and not only that but this gym, its people and our culture. Anything I can do to help someone as soon as they walk through those doors, I will do!
