Dedicated Coach. Passionate Leader. Forward Thinking Entrepreneur. Community Involved Volunteer. Founder of One Sound Body.
I began my professional health & wellness coaching journey in 2005 working for corporate gyms and grew to head the Personal Training departments at two Equinox Fitness Clubs: 85th Street Manhattan & Great Neck, NY for 7 years. Searching for an opportunity to grow, in 2012 I left corporate fitness to pursue entrepreneurship, co-owning & operating three Body King Personal Training Studios in Long Island, NY, before starting this new venture.
From small beginnings as a kid, I was a multi-sport athlete and got my first taste of coaching through youth hockey & breakdancing. I went to a job fair in college and was hired for my first professional coaching job at The Personal Training Institute in Port Washington, Long Island, NY. Since then, I’ve continued to evolve and grow to successfully coach thousands of clients & mentor hundreds of fitness professionals over the years.
At the same time, I’ve contributed my time and talents to many community groups and causes. I’m the current President of the Floral Park Chamber of Commerce since 2018 and was awarded the 2015 Business Person of the Year recognition by the Nassau Council of Chambers of Commerce for my community contributions.
I earned my Bachelor’s Degree from the New York Institute of Technology (NYIT), but I’m currently in pursuit of my Master’s Degree in Food & Nutrition & state license as a Registered Dietician Nutritionist. Besides my college education, I’m a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist (CSCS) with the National Strength and Conditioning Association (NSCA), a Precision Nutrition Level 2 Coach, Titleist Performance Institute Certified Golf Fitness Coach and holds these other certifications : IM=X Pilates, Pre/Post Natal, Kettlebell Concepts, TRX, & Active Isolated Stretching.
