I fell in love with fitness and sports when I went to my first basketball game at 3 weeks old. I grew up in the gym or on the diamond. I graduated college from Arkansas Tech University with a degree in K-12 Health and PE. I began coaching and teaching while getting my Masters in Secondary Education with an emphasis in Kinesiology in 2013. In 2014 I joined the Arkansas National Guard. I moved to Iowa in 2018 and began teaching 7th grade English and coaching basketball and track at Fulton Middle School. I switched to the Army Reserves and am currently a Company Commander out of Canton, IL. Joining the KT3 staff as a substitute coach has been one of the most uplifting and rewarding decisions I have ever done.
