A Williamsburg native, Kevin always had a natural inclination to the world of exercise and movement. Any and every sport was up for grabs, but eventually he claimed Handball (AKA Wallball) as his sport of choice. When it was time for college, this innate passion resurfaced and pushed him to get his Bachelors degree in Movement Science.
Shortly after college, Kevin spent 7 years working in physical therapy and rehab settings. He gained knowledge which he hopes to use to improve the quality of life of those around him. He’s learned to be malleable and developed an approach that prioritizes the needs of an individual. Going to the movies, traveling, exercising, playing video games, spending quality time with quality people, and creating content in the health and wellness space are all things Kevin enjoys in his spare time.
