Born and raised in Boston, MA now residing in Iceland (long story. lol) I served 8 years in the United States Army, deployed twice (Albania and Iraq/Kuwait) Before being deployed to the middle east for two years, I worked as a environmental technician and wanted to learn more about the industry until my deployment.

Once my deployment was over, and moved to Iceland I ended up with Bechtel to help them build, Alcoa Fjarðáal. An aluminum smelter, where I have been working since 2007 once production started. During my time with Bechtel, I was persuaded to get certified as a Personal Trainer and give Bootcamp classes, because of my constant talk of fitness and my work outs, and at the same time I was introduced to Herbalife, and the network Industry, and I was hooked. I wanted to learn more about the fitness/wellness industry, so I enrolled in ISSA's Associate Degree Program in Exercise Science. My ultimate goal(s) is to add Yoga/Tai Chi, and Lifestyle Fitness Certifications, purchase a franchise gym, and work with clients in my age bracket, basically 40+. I would like to show people who are nearing 50 years of age (like myself) that just because we get older does not mean that we still cannot be active, eat healthy, and look/feel good.
