Additional Information

Part of life is discovering the tools that lie within the toolbox we are all given, the passions that speak to our souls and the work we put in to make those two meet. For myself, sports, wellness and fitness have always been a passion for my everyday life. They led me to two degrees that expanded that passion into knowledge and have continued to grow as I navigated life as a self-employed creative for the last decade. As time has gone on, the paths of my creative soul and my passion for fitness and wellness have started to merge. Finding Whoop has continued to peak my need for growth and combining these two aspects. I wholeheartedly believe I could bring a sense of leadership and creative direction, combined with that passion for fitness and wellness to the company as a valued individual and team player.
