Personal Bio: Fitness has always been important to me. One of my first jobs was as a dance teacher and I remember studying my way through college on the stair climber. Now fitness is a way of life – providing a way to stay in shape, find stress relief, push myself towards goals and have social interaction with friends. I am trained as an occupational therapist and work mainly with the geriatric population at the hospital and in local nursing homes and can see the advantage those have in healing who have put exercise as a priority in their life. I started teaching at the Y when I was staying home raising my children and loved it. I was able to use my training to help members improve their fitness levels on a different scale! When I’m not working, I enjoy reading, cooking, running, and spending time with family and friends. I have always been a morning person and my Monday and Friday 5 am boot camp is always open for new faces – come join us!
