She is an avid reader of thriller and mystery novels, and has a passion for cooking clean and healthy foods for herself and her family.

She loves escape rooms and amusement parks, but also enjoys relaxing on the couch with her family. She is grateful to be a part of the Core Performance team and looks forward to her future in field of physical therapy.
