I graduated from Heidelberg College with a B.S degree and have a masters degree from Wright State. I have been teaching for 27 years and 24 years for Goshen. I have two children Jenny who is 14 and Josh 9. I also work and train at the largest YMCA in the United States in Lebanon, Ohio. I started to train for figure competitions in 2011 and have worked extremely hard to achieve my goals. I earned two pro cards and plan on competing as a pro in the year 2015. I enjoy spending time in the gym and plan to pursue a fitness and nutrition certification after I retire from my teaching career.
