General Manager

I grew up in Missouri throwing pumpkins and hay bales every year for the better part of a decade. I had the luxury of being skinny, due to the environment I was raised in. My parents encouraged me to play sports, and after years of baseball and soccer I moved on to track and field. Eventually, I landed in the weight room after being cast in a role that required me to take my shirt off. (Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dream Coat in case you were wondering) After a summer of lifting weights I was overwhelmed by the response to my physique and felt compelled to continue the trend for the rest of my life.

In 2010 I moved to Los Angeles, acquired my personal training cert., and got a job with the wellness company Pressed Juicery. Working one on one with clients was so rewarding that in 2015 I went full time Personal Training at Equinox West Hollywood and quickly grew into a management role.

During 2020 I was able to reassess what was important to me, and through the support of my partner Joel, OPVS was brought into existence. I am so excited to share this private space with anyone who is willing to make movement a priority in their life.
