I'm a mom, a wife, and an animal lover. I have a passion for helping others reach their fitness goals! I love encouraging and motivating people to recognize that they really CAN live a healthy lifestyle despite what their backgrounds might be. I have a Bachelors Degree in the Science of Nursing (BSN) from Indiana University of Pennsylvania. I worked in a skilled nursing facility for many years as I went through nursing school and then I dove head first into rough waters when I passed my state boards and began working in the emergency department as a Registered Nurse. Seeing all of the preventable illnesses and injuries come into those ER doors really drove my passion a step further to help people take better care of themselves.
I became certified to teach Group Exercise classes in 2007 and began my fitness career at that time! I am constantly doing research and continuing education to further my understanding and practices! I am now an ACE certified fitness instructor and am also a certified prenatal and postnatal fitness specialist. I love working with mothers who want to stay fit before, during and after their pregnancies.
My group fitness classes are driven by music and fun, choreographed exercise circuits. We utilize various types of regimens throughout the week to keep things fresh. I hope I get to meet you so I can learn more about you and help you along your journey to live a healthier, happier life!
