Director of Operations
Growing up with the love and addiction to sports I have molded a strong work ethic that had transpired into the person I am today. I was involved with numerous sports during my youth and found my niche with basketball, football, and track during my high school years. I continued track at the collegiate level where I became and All-American and two time national qualifier. I studied health and human performance which equipped me with knowledge and skills to help athletes get to their max performance.
Being a part of ETS Training for the last two years I've been exposed to the ETS approach and unique methodologies of development and maximizing the performance of all athletes from all sports and abilities.
I'm super fired up to give back and give all athletes the opportunities that I didn't have growing up. My goals have always been to work with athletes from the youth level all the way up to the professional level. I want to give these athletes the tools they need to maximize themselves as athletes and build character to make them a better person.
Master’s degree in Sport & Exercise, certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist through the NSCA, Corrective Exercise and Performance Enhancement Specialist through the NASM
"Growing up athletics were always a big part of my life. As I progressed through high school and into college, I narrowed my focus to soccer. I have been fortunate enough to play beyond college and am currently a member of the U.S. National Beach Soccer team. Training and rehabbing from injuries throughout my soccer career allowed me to see the impact that performance training can have not only with regards to sport, but life in general. Now I want to share this passion with athletes of all ages and abilities.
After graduating from Hope College, I went on to receive my Master’s degree in Sport & Exercise Science in 2017. Since then, I have become a certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist through the NSCA as well as a Corrective Exercise and Performance Enhancement Specialist through the NASM. I have recently become certified in the Functional Movement Screen and am pursuing my certification in Applied Functional Science through the Gray Institute.
ETS offers a unique approach to sport performance, working to maximize potential, prevent injury and impact the lives of all athletes who walk through the doors here. I am excited to continue to be a part of ETS and the development of athletes in West Michigan."
Performance Nutrition Implementation Consultant
Founder of XTS Speed and Strength & CEStrong
I have been in the Fitness and Sports Performance industry for 17 years. Prior to creating CESTRONG, I was the owner of XTS Speed & Strength, a sports performance facility where I had the oportunity to physically prepare 1,000's of high school, college, and professional athletes from all over the world. In 2014 I sold XTS to focus on my CESTRONG fitness and sports performance consulting business.
It is crucial for every human being to develop the fundamental basic athletic and biomechanical movements, strength techniques, deceleration protocols, and specific energy system development to truly maximize their potential no matter what walk of life they come from. For everyone it is a different path, but the principles are the same. I have created a system to accomplish this and it is the basis for all programs I design. I look forward to communicating with you and answering your questions, and to seeing you progress through our programs!
