Who I Am

Your Fitness Party Starter

I believe that if fitness is FUN, it can change your life!

Dance fitness is my passion. I'm proud to have been one of the first Zumba instructors in metropolitan Chicago, and still going strong nearly 14 years later. I was selected by Zumba Fitness as part of the company's first worldwide team of instructor choreographers ("Zumba Jammers,") and have mentored countless new instructors in their fitness careers.

For me, the fun doesn't stop with the booty-shaking. Nothing feels better than a strong, limber, cross-trained body. My latest passion is Barre Above-a fluid fusion of strength training, core conditioning and flexibility work.
