I started driving for Prime in 1999 when I was only 22 years old. Back then, like most 22 year olds, I wasn't really concerned about my health. I ate whatever I wanted because I never thought it would actually affect me. I didn't start focusing on my health until the doctor gave me the scare of a lifetime. I knew then and there that if I was going to enjoy life to its fullest that I had to take a completely different approach with my health choices.

My health journey started back in 2016 a year before I started OTR, I was twenty-one and weighed in at 480lbs. Working out wasn’t new to me, as I participated in multiple sports throughout high school, but working out while maintaining healthy eating habits was a foreign concept.
2016 started like any other yearly physical, but this time instead of the doc telling me about my weight, he simply asked me if I wanted to live to see thirty. It was the wakeup call I needed.
