I’m super thrilled to work with some super familiar faces (I went to school with Psycho Sid and then worked along side Sid and Jayme during my graduate degree) as well as the rest of the staff that’s already treated me like part of the family. My love for exercise and rehabilitation which started 10 years ago sparked my journey to try to help as many people as possible get back to a pain free lifestyle, from athletes to adults to anyone in between. There’s nothing better than being surrounded by so many like-minded, talented, and genuine trainers that really makes this place feel like home. I can’t wait to bring my background as an athletic trainer to the world of Pratt Personal Training to see two worlds collide!
