I hold a Master of Science in Kinesiology - Biophysical Emphasis from Boise State University. I am looking for full time employment in a field in which I can utilize my skills as a passionate and talented Strength and Conditioning Coach, while positively impacting athlete safety and expanding my knowledge of human physiology and its response to training, with and without the use of specialized equipment. I began coaching after ending my 13 year career as a competitive gymnast, and quickly discovered that I had a deep seeded passion for coaching and having a positive impact on athletes of all ages. I chose the field of Strength and Conditioning in order to help athletes avoid the countless hours of injury rehabilitation and missed practices that I have endured in the past, provide performance enhancement guidance to athletes, and to have the opportunity to work with athletes from many different competitive backgrounds. I have spent a year and a half working as a Graduate Assistant in the strength and conditioning department at Boise State University, under the direction of head Strength and Conditioning coach Tim Socha, as well as one year as an intern in the Sports Performance Department at Oregon State University, under the direction of head Sports Performance Coach Bryan Miller, both NCAA Division 1A programs. I have also spent one year working at Parisi Speed School, where I taught running mechanics, speed, agility, and injury prevention to youth athletes. I enjoy working independently as well as in a team environment.
