I came to Philadelphia from Newark, NJ in 2006 seeking recovery from drug addiction. I was working toward a new life in a new place when I graduated from an outpatient treatment program. My life seemed to be on the right track. But a few years later I found myself back in the homeless shelter system.

Then, I found Subversus’ coaching educational program, UliftU which gave me the opportunity to learn how to become a coach in the fitness industry. As someone who always worked out and loved helping people, I knew I had a future here. I completed the ULiftU program and now love coaching at Subversus.

I also coach free fitness classes in North Philly three nights a week for those at risk of chronic disease. That’s the most fulfilling part of what I do, and I look forward to doing more in the community. ULiftU and coaching have changed my life for the better. I’m on a continuous course of personal development with a career path that allows me to help others do the same. I am loving this life.
