  1. My kids and my family

  2. Maui

  3. The energy at the end of a fabulous class

What inspired me to teach?

I got very bored working out on treadmills and typical gym equipment, which lead me to have no motivation to work out at a gym. I knew I could not be the only one, so I took a Zumba® training while on vacation from dancing on Royal Caribbean Cruise ships. After teaching a few classes I knew this could be a great transition from the dance world to fitness. Since then every training, certification, or course has come from my continuous desire to learn, teach, and help others.

Why do I teach?

I teach because I love it!  I love inspiring others and being a positive influence (does not matter how big or small) to others. 

What do I teach?

I do not know what to say…..so my son says, “I love purple!” (that is a fact). My daughter says, “I make everyday a happy day for her” (Yah mom win!…I’ll take it since I am sure it will change as she gets older). My staff say “I talk about Pelvic Floor every day” (also a fact)…

I grew up competitively dancing and continued to do so until age 21.  I graduated from the U of S in 2008, and found something was missing in my new “adult’ life.  I actually attended one of Kelly’s Zumba classes, fell in love with the style and knew that was going to be my next step for my fitness to continue on.  I found Zumba was a nice fit between my dancing background and my newly acquired knowledge from my Kinesiology degree.  After entering the world of teaching, my curiosity began to grow and I continued taking more trainings.
