I have been with Loyola Center for Fitness for just over four years. I started off as a Personal Trainer/ Fitness Specialist and moved up to Center Director. My goal is to give each and every member the ultimate experience each day they use the center. I thrive to make customer service my number one priority and will do everything I can to help each and every member succeed in their health and fitness goals.
I have been the Facility Engineer here at The Center for Fitness for since 2000. My responsibilities extend from all issues concerning the structure, to the laundry team and the overnight cleaning crew. I have found this to be a wonderful place to work. I enjoy the light hearted banter between us; it helps keep me on my toes. I look forward to working many more years here serving the members.
I have been in the fitness industry since 1997. I joined the Loyola Center for Fitness team in 2008. Providing excellent customer service to members and guests is my number one goal. As medical integration coordinator my focus is to help individuals benefit from our medically based fitness programs, and nutrition and wellness coaching services. These programs provide the continuum of care which is a bridge from a clinical setting to our fitness center.
I have been LCF’s Food Service manager for more than fourteen years. I earned a certificate in Food Service Management from Richard J. Daley College and have more than 30 years of experience in the industry. In overseeing the café at Loyola, I strive to bring healthy and appetizing fare to our members and guests. I take great pride in the quality of our offerings, and am always open to suggestions to expand our menu.
My goal is to bring my passion of health, wellness, and fitness to my client’s everyday through education and motivation. I aim to challenge my clients to help them discover their full fitness potential, keep their workout fun, and help them overcome any obstacles, mental or physical, that may stand in their way. I hope to teach the importance of what doing even a little activity everyday can do for the body and the mind. I also oversee the Special Programs Department and love to see the bond that people make working together in class - people inspire, motivate, and hold each other accountable all for the goal of being healthy. I hope to help our members see that they can get out of their comfort zone and into one of our classes, we have something for everyone!
I love group fitness classes and there’s no better place to teach them and take them than Loyola Center for Fitness! We have something for everyone. All of our instructors are trained and certified to meet the needs of all of our members. We are here to provide safe, effective, and motivating classes that will challenge you to meet your fitness goals and inspire you to keep coming back for more. I not only manage the group exercise department, I also teach Aqua, Spinning, Group Active, Body Shred, and Tabata classes. For me as an instructor and the Group Exercise Coordinator, there is nothing better than witnessing a group of our members working out together, sweating, smiling and having fun in the studios or the pool!
I have been employed at Loyola Center for Fitness since 2008. I started as a Member Service Representative where I learned countless members' names and stories. I aimed to provide top notch customer service and greet everyone with a friendly smile. I worked my way up to Sales Representative and focused on bringing in new members for the next 4 years. Building a strong rapport with prospects and members was always important to me so each person knew they are an individual- not a number. I've most recently moved up to the Center's Administrative Accounting Coordinator. Now my main responsibilities are based behind-the-scenes. I handle the Center's finances, organize staff matters, and make sure our members' billing matters are in order. No matter what position I hold at LCF, you will still spot me working out on the fitness floor or participating in a group exercise class when I'm off the clock! I believe everyone needs to make time to focus on their physical and mental health.

I have been employed at Loyola since May of 2019. However, I have been in the fitness industry for over 10 years. During my time, with a plethora of opportunities to learn and grow within the industry, the goal has always been the same: Be Relentless. Whatever you would like to achieve, you can achieve by putting your mind to it. I am here to help the Loyola Community in understanding this and hope to make an impact!
