Dylan finds peace and confidence through sport, fitness and the community that comes with it. From the standard American kid chasing a soccer ball, to a high school state champion in track and a collegiate cross country runner and coach, fitness has always been a component of his life.

After suffering through injuries that took him out of competitive running for three years He found himself searching deeply for answers through studying anatomy, physiology and nutrition. This led him to pursue a biology degree at Lander University following one year of studying sports management at Winthrop University and picking up his ACSM personal training certification along the way.

As an all-around athlete, Dylan does as many sports as possible for both the sweat and the laughs. Here at the Suitcase of Courage Dylan is working to contribute an upbeat and analytical perspective to the clients we work with to aide in pain management and fitness attainment.

Maria's passion is for positive energy and growth of the people she works with.  After graduating with a BSc in Marketing she worked at Lululemon for 4 years; a combination of retail management, leadership development, and all-you-can-sweat shenanigans. 

During this time her passion for yoga, wellness, and personal development unfolded, and this led Maria to complete her 200 hour Yoga Alliance certification.  Maria decided to take up wellness coaching and yoga instruction full time soon after, and she is working towards her 500 hour certification with the Asheville, NC Yoga Center.  Maria provides all of the Suitcase of Courage's yoga trainer courses and enjoys nothing more than seeing her students learn and grow into better versions of themselves.
