A Colorado Native who was a survivor of a heart defect called “Tetrology of Fallot”. Medications caused my hearing to drop at a young age. Growing up, I struggled to connect with my peers and become an avid TV watcher. Reading captions on my favorite shows allowed me to understand different aspects of life and inspired me to become an actor. When the time came to try out for various sports, I could barley keep up with my classmates. Then I received a second heart surgery that opened another door and inspired me to pursue a career in Health and Fitness.
