I’m a 7-year resident of Ocean Isle Beach, and I’m ecstatic to be here! Originally from Massachusetts, I moved here after 24 years in Fairfax, VA. An MA from St. Leo College and an MBA from Central Michigan University paved the way for my career as an Information Technology engineer, both in the States and in Europe. I worked primarily in the health care environment where my passion for helping make, and keep, people well inspired me to lead group exercise classes to motivate people of all ages to take charge of their health by safely improving their cardiovascular fitness, energy, strength, flexibility and balance.
I’m certified with the Athletics & Fitness Association of America, Ballet Barre, 5 Hula Hoop Fitness organizations including Yoga-inspired Hoopyasa, 5 Les Mills International programs including Body Pump, 3 Silver Sneakers formats including Yoga, and am a 13-year Zumba Fitness instructor licensed in Zumba Gold, Toning, Aqua, Kids, Step, and Zumba’s bootcamp platform, Strong by Zumba.
My passion is currently focused on Zumba/Country Zumba, 20/20/20 (low impact cardio for 20 minutes, weights for 20, then 20 minutes of core), and hoop classes. (The hoop class combines cardio, Barre, Pilates and yoga, all with a hoop – and I provide the hoops.) I’ve been teaching for many years and enjoy each class to the max! I’ll gladly adjust the moves in my class to accommodate everyone, showing different levels and options when appropriate.
