Bio

I am a hardworking, determined, often stubborn young woman. I was an overachiever in high school; amazing grades, involved in what felt like every extracurricular activity, and I began working at age sixteen to start saving to go to college. I knew I wanted to do SOMETHING, but I didn't know what. When I was eighteen, I left home to attend school out of state at Tulane where I knew no one. I decided to pursue Public Health with the goal of attending Chiropractic school after undergrad. I volunteered all over, but the most fulfilling thing was educating others on living healthier lives. Some tragedies occurred, including a sexual assault on the campus that caused severe anxiety and made it impossible for me to be on campus alone. Shortly after, I lost someone very important to me. I gave up on my goals, and on school due to my circumstances and returned home defeated. I eventually began working at a gym (because it was finally a full-time job) at age twenty, and I am so grateful that I did. I fell in love with fitness, and started to grow into the woman I am now. I worked my way up the company and became the youngest General Manager in its 35 year history. I had the opportunity to help hundreds of women in my community live healthier, happier lives through nutrition and exercise. I have even seen shy, defeated victims of abuse or ridicule gain confidence through fitness; it is inspiring. At age twenty-four, I had the courage to return to school. I am now on my third semester back, and will graduate in 2021 after only 7 semesters with my B.S. in Exercise Science, and I have been accepted to the D.C. Chiropractic program as well. I am proud that at twenty-five, I can learn more and continue to grow, and in doing so help others.
