I joined in 2017 as the Assistant Program Manager and then moved into the Program Manager position in 2018. During my time I have enjoyed both engagement with members and fellow staff. One of the greatest enjoyments I have with my current role is the development and training of staff to help them reach their full potential. Every day is different and unique which makes work fun and exciting. My wife and I have twin girls, a boy and two Golden Doodle dogs and we enjoy spending time traveling and camping together as a family.

I started in August of 2019 as a Health Fitness Specialist. I greatly enjoyed that position as it gave me many diverse avenues to serve the Wellness Center members. Promoting the health and well-being of individuals through physical exercise, conducting fitness testing and assessments, and developing personal exercise programs were just a few of the fantastic opportunities that I was afforded in that position. In June of 2020, I moved into the role of Assistant Program Manager/Recreation Coordinator. In this position I support the Wellness Center Program Manager by performing various administrative duties associated with facility operations in addition to building and implementing recreational programs to engage Wellness Center members in a wide variety of ways. I am extraordinarily fortunate to be a part of the team that I work with and look forward to each and every day at work. I am not only committed to a career in fitness but also exhibit that same commitment in my personal life. My wife and I regularly take hiking trips around Oklahoma and we have both recently become quite dedicated to the combat sport of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu.

Wellness Center Administrative Assistant

I joined the Wellness Center in fall of 2018, my job is unique just like the population and offerings in Bartlesville. What I love most about my job is that I never know what each day will bring. My job focus is reporting, signage, and assisting with various reservations in the Wellness Center. When I am not at work, I spend my time going on adventures with my nieces, working with the assortment of animals on my family’s ranch and learning about different time periods as well as cultures through reading and research.

Health Fitness Specialist

Certifications- National Academy of Sports Medicine -Certified Personal Training

I was born and raised in the Kansas City area. Growing up I loved sports and I always wanted to be involved in athletics. As I got older, I shifted my focus solely onto basketball, always striving to be great. I was blessed for my diligence and accomplished many goals that I set out to do, including winning the state championship during my sophomore year. Going into college, I decided to take a step back from being an athlete and look for a career in the fitness world instead. What I enjoy most about my role here in the Wellness Center is training others to be the best version of themselves. I also greatly appreciate the variety that each day brings. I can’t wait to see what my future has in store for me.

I started in November of 2017 and greatly enjoy my role as a Health Fitness Specialist. The best part about working in this facility is how much my knowledge in fitness is expanding from working with my colleagues and helping members.

After graduating from UCA I spent 3 years working at a sports performance facility in Arkansas before moving to a corporate wellness career path in 2021. Most recently I accepted a job with the Wellness Center in order to be closer to family and come back to my hometown. My mission is to help people feel strong, healthy, confident and, most of all, happy. In addition to my duties as a Health Fitness Specialist, I also engage with members doing Personal Training and teaching Group Fitness classes. In my spare time I enjoy training for triathlons and being outside, as well as lifting weights and spending time with friends.
