phrase that inspires you: b • happy
Zumba, well dancing in general, is something that can always make me happy. On days when I'm stressed coming to Zumba helps to relieve the stress and brighten my day. I really try to live my life with a smile on my face everyday. So I choose b • happy as my phrase because smiling is my favorite!! :)
what inspired you to start leading fitness classes?
I was inspired by my love of dance, and then I found Zumba, which was working out and dance all combined into one thing. After attending my first Zumba class I knew that I had caught the "Zumba bug" and it would be a part of my life. While attending the classes I would see how much fun my instructors were having and it got me to thinking how I would love to do this as well.
what keeps you motivated?
It is so much FUN! I enjoy everyone that I am working with and everyone who comes to the classes. I am excited to go to class and see everyone and shake it!
Zumba Basic 1
Zumba Kids & Zumba Kids Jr
Zumba Instructor Network (ZIN)
I am an elementary school teacher at Murdock, teaching 3rd grade. I feel like this background is going to help me with Zumba Kids and Zumba Kids Jr. because I enjoy working with these ages of kids and I have learned how to keep them engaged in learning.
what do you do when you're not teaching fitness classes?
I teach at Murdock Elementary School in a 3rd grade class. I also enjoy spending time with my husband, family, friends, and pets at local parks playing disc golf or walking around trails. You can also find me at golf courses hitting balls, which is another love of mine, even though I am not the best at it. I like to be active and get out into nature.
why do you teach at studio b?
I teach at Studio b because I love the atmosphere at this studio. All of the staff members are so much fun and a joy to work with. I couldn't picture myself working at any other studio.
