Growing up in southern Virginia, I learned the value of hard work. I finished my undergraduate degree in BS in Exercise Science from East Carolina University and received my Master's in Exercise, Fitness, and Health Promotion from George Mason University. After the recession of 2008, I pivoted from physical therapy to remodeling and renovating homes around the DMV area. I realized that connecting with my residential clients, transforming homes, and maintaining business operations for commercial customers provides me with a meaningful purpose.
