“ The reason I got into the Strength and Conditioning profession is because I love coaching and helping athletes reach their goals through hard work and determination. I have always had two passions in my life growing up. Playing and teaching the game of basketball and working out. Being a Strength and Conditioning coach I get to indirectly prepare each athlete to become a better basketball player on the court by improving their physical weaknesses off the court.  I take pride in showing kids that hard work will help them achieve their goals and this doesn’t just apply to the game of basketball but life in general.”

I am excited to be a part of the VABA family, and to work with so many student-athletes helping them to achieve their goals."
