I have had a wonderful time here at Union Fitness thus far. I came in here expecting to learn so much from my peers and I have. However, my time here is coming to an end sooner than I would like. I have been offered a Graduate Assistant position at the University of Pittsburgh to further my education and gain experience in the world of clinical exercise physiology. I am extremely excited to get started with this journey of mine, but saddened to leave my position here.
However, you cannot get rid of me that easy. I will still be training at Union when I can and coming in to visit. I have made wonderful connections with both staff and members and I hope to continue to build those connections with all of you. I think this is going to be a huge step in my professional development and I will have the opportunity to learn from some extremely knowledgeable professors and researchers. This was a very quick decision I had to make, but it is getting me one step closer to my long term goals and I am very lucky to have the people in my corner that I do.
With this plan of action, I am hoping to have a path somewhere with special and clinical populations. These would include obesity, cancer rehabilitation, cardiac and pulmonary rehabilitation as well. Right now it is unknown where I will end up. But, that is okay. I do not need to know where my endgame will be or even my next few steps. Obviously I have a plan, but you never know how those stinkin little plans will work out. I promise to keep you all updated about my journey; that is if you are even interested. I have had the best experience here and I cannot wait to see what the future holds for me. You all are wonderful and beautiful people. I will be around so come say hi when you see me! Best of luck to all of you!
