I started boxing at the age of 8. Later, I began Kick Boxing and Muay Thai. Then in 1993 I joined the US Army as a Military Police Officer and within 2 years I was a Physical Training Instructor and Hand to Hand Combat Instructor. In 1999, on my return from a deployment to Bosnia, I won the US Army Golden Gloves at Fort Riley, KS. In 2001 I was selected to teach a class at the German Police Academy in Lieche, Germany. Afterwards, I was selected to return and attend the full Academy. In 2009 I began training in Krav Maga as well as Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. In 2013 I became a Certified Fight Fit Coach.
I have always been very interested in how various foods affect the body and how many companies attempt to label their products as healthy when they are not. This lead me to continue more research on my own and eventually obtaining my Certification in Sports Nutrition. Now as a Director of Personal Training and Fight Coach, I dedicate much of my time to educating others on the importance of selecting the right foods for the right outcome.
