My years of experience working with the special needs community and partnership with VISTA LIFE INNOVATIONS inspired me to develop programs for adults with special needs and their families. I work with the parents, guardians, and coordinated care team of my clients to develop an individualized plan of exercise and nutritional support to bring the highest level of health to your child's life.
I create exercise and nutrition plans based on the abilities of your child and create a safe and supportive environment for positive socialization and reinforcement of healthy habits through exercise and nutritional counseling. I also manage and deliver these services through the individuals entire support team to ensure maximum success.
What I offer to my specialized training clientele:
Adaptive Personal Training and Nutritional Counseling
Personal Training and Nutritional Support along with coordinated care for adults with neurological disabilities.
