I began my Martial Arts journey in 2011 when I stumbled across a traditional style Muay Thai gym in northern WI.  I was instantly hooked.  While visiting my hometown of Kenosha for the weekends, I trained at Rothwell MMA.  I knew I would join if/when I moved back!

After 3 years, I moved back home to Kenosha and began training at Rothwell MMA five days a week.  Coach Ben invited me to join the MMA team, which included all styles of martial arts, even though at the time I was only invested in one (stand-up).  I just couldn’t get enough.  As soon as I rounded out my skills, I took my first fight and never looked back. Martial arts has been such a journey and has played a huge role in shaping who I am today.  I have gained confidence, peace, and humility.  Martial arts also helped me lose weight and gain strength.

In 2016, I became a martial arts coach at Rothwell MMA.  I seek to inspire other students to find the same things I found in martial arts – strength, courage, confidence.  I also enjoy helping students learn how to express themselves and reduce stress through martial arts.
