What "b" phrase inspires you?
Be true to yourself. Everyone is different, and in a different walk of life. I love to learn different things from different people and then turn around and teach others what I have learned.
Why do you teach dance & fitness?
I have a super stressful day job and I needed something that relieved my stress. I found Pound and have never looked back. I had an awesome Pound instructor who inspired me to become a Pound Pro. I always strive to help people and this is my way of giving back
When did you begin in dance & fitness?
I started focusing on fitness 3 years ago when I had some medical issues and knew that I couldn't live like I was forever.
What keeps you motivated?
Seeing the class with a smile on their face. I know that I am not only helping them physically, but mentally as well.
What is your professional background?
I am the veterinary technologist emergency and critical care supervisor at Purdue University's veterinary hospital. It is a 24/7 position that I would not trade for the world. I love teaching veterinary and veterinary technology students.
Why do you teach at Studio b?
The studio is an amazing place. There is a sense of community and it is so nice to have a place that you can go to and de-stress. Everyone that attends classes and works here are some of the greatest people you will ever meet.
On the side, I play flute and hope to have goats in my backyard one day!
