I began my career in the fitness industry in 1999 and have been fully engaged in it for 18+ years now.  During this time, I  have worked my way up the ladder and have held multiple positions at several local gyms in the Main Line area.  Some of these positions have included:  front desk staff, group fitness instructor, personal trainer, fitness director, and general manager.  I have learned a great deal along that journey, most notably the importance of customer service.  For me, a customer's satisfaction and overall experience within a fitness facility, as well as with it's staff, is top priority.

My favorite role however, has been a personal trainer, which has also been my primary role during my fitness career.  With a BS degree in both Kinesiology/Fitness Specialist and Physical Education, as well as two minors; one in Health and another in Nutrition, I have always had the passion for helping to educate, support, and motivate others to desire a sustainable healthy lifestyle.

I enjoy the challenge of creating exercise and nutrition programs that produce results specific to my clients' goals such as strength training, weight-loss, agility and speed, pre- and post-natal wellness, and functional training.  I have worked with clients spanning all life stages and many who have been loyal clients of mine for over 10+ years.

We have created Valor Personal Training, as our tag line says, to “Inspire the Courageous Pursuit of Good Health & Fitness”.  Its not always an easy journey, but with commitment, determination, and a team effort, we can get you to where you want to be with your health.
