I was born and raised in Huntington beach, California where I achieved my bachelors in Sports psychology, Kinesiology at Cal State Long Beach. I then went on to complete my masters in occupational therapy at west coast university, Los angeles. From here it has been a goal of mine to obtain my CHT in the near future, which has brought me to Arizona for my first time. In my free time I love spending time outdoors adventuring and weightlifting.
