Email: firstname.lastname@example.orgI have been teaching in some form or capacity since I was 19 years old. I began teaching high impact aerobics classes in the 90’s (and unfortunately wore the workout attire popular at that time). After completing my Master Degree in Education, I began teaching little people during the day as an Elementary School teacher. I loved kids so much I decided to go ahead and have 5 of them! I have two kids in college and a kid in 11th, 7th and 5th grade. I began my journey at Thoreau when I was a junior in high school working as a counselor at the camp. I became a member in 2000 and began working here in Group Ex in 2012. I am a certified Personal trainer as well as TRX, Spin, Power, Blast & Groove. I am currently the Group Fitness manager as well as an instructor. My passion is to help others on their fitness journey. I try to exude energy in my classes that inspire people to move, sweat and feel good about themselves. Everyone has their own path they are trying to follow. If you haven’t tried a class it is time! I am happy to help anyone find their path or to try a new one- it is easy to get lost sometime. In my “free time” I love to walk my Golden Retriever, read (surprising as that may be to some), and of course spend time with my family and friends.
