  • My Network

    I will gladly involve you in my circle that includes connections at various locations in Greenville and beyond that I have met while working in the fitness industry outside of the classroom. This not only allows improved teaching through practical experience but can open shadowing, internship, and job opportunities for our students in Health Science.

  • My Story

    Throughout my life I have always been involved in athletics so I knew I wanted to stay close to the sports and fitness industry. As a graduate student at Applachian State University I fell in love with teaching and that passion has continued to this day. I love students and how through the Gospel and Education, lives and families can be changed!

    I have been married to my wife Ashley since 2007 and we have 4 boys: Caleb, Carter, Samuel, and Miles. We love being outdoors hiking, camping, fishing, and kayaking while enjoying a good cup of coffee!
