I have been involved with fitness since I was 16 year old when I was diagnosed with severe scoliosis. Staying in shape helped with having back issues and avoiding surgery.
I started teaching group fitness classes in 1987 in South Florida and continued to teach classes at FSU while a student there. In 1997, I owned a Planet Smoothie franchise where I gained vast knowledge of diet and supplements to help maintain a healthy lifestyle.
I was certified in Body Pump and Body Step 2003. I was recertified in pump in 2018. I enjoy working with all ages to help with their fitness needs.
