What do you do from 9 to 5? I work in market access/patient services at a large pharma company on the North Shore. In essence, I assist in making a connection between the physician, pharmacy and payer to enable the patient to receive their therapy.
When do you make time to workout? I keep a pretty busy workout schedule. I can usually be found at the 5AM West Loop class, and then it’s likely running and/or yoga somewhere in the neighborhood nearly every evening.
What inspired you to get into CTF? I went through a number of back surgeries (wear and tear from years in the Navy that resulted in six surgeries in about 12 years) and was ready to return to a healthy and active lifestyle. The personal training and class instruction were exactly what I needed to make that return and to do it safely.
Tell us a fun fact about you! I consider myself a connoisseur of Malbec. Don’t believe me? Ask my friends…
Fun fact #2: I’ve ran a half-marathon in nine consecutive months and have set a goal to run a half every month in 2017 – I’m also running the California International Marathon in December (can you say “Boston Qualifier”…).
Great workout classes and instructors. Challenging circuits. Motivating environment.

Friendly and encouraging staff. Everything I’m looking for in a gym membership, including clean facilities, challenging environment, and fun, yet difficult, workouts that never get mundane. CTF is the place to be :)

I love the classes and format. Each class/instructor are different so I like the variety in styles and that a new muscle group will be challenged. I love the energy of the class too- I always get motivated within a few minutes of seeing how hard everyone is working. I love the customer service as well- I've had to reach out over the years for different queries, and someone always gets back to me and makes sure my question is answered an my issues are resolved.
