About Me

I am 4' 11" and was once 170 pounds.  I was out of shape and looking for a way to get the weight off, but dreaded going to a gym for hours.  I found an old VHS tape of Zumba from 1999 and heard from a friend they had live classes.  I was nervous and uncomfortable with myself because I was out of shape and wasn't sure I would keep up.  I had fears of feeling awkward and looking silly.  What if I couldn't do it?  I noticed other students were laughing, singing out loud, screaming, having a blast as if they were at a party, and I knew I wanted to learn more.  I started taking classes every week and was hooked on the way Zumba made me feel and my results.  I lost a total of 30 pounds, my body shape was transforming, and I felt amazing.  I knew  I had to share this passion and help inspire others!  I had an amazing instructor and mentor, who has helped motivate and inspire me along the way.  Thank you, Marianne Martino-Giosa!

Zumba has changed my life, and I would love to share my passion and joy with you.  I have found Zumba to be very empowering and builds a confidence in you that you may have never known existed.  Zumba Instructors touch so many lives, bringing people together from all over the world, and I am very proud to be a part of such an extraordinary team. 

I will dedicate my all to you.  Motivate you.  Encourage you to succeed.  Laugh with you.  Push you a little.  Never give up on you, and most of all Care about your health.

Every class is a party and the hour is over before you know it!  Let's feel the music and let our hips do the talking!   Check out my class schedule to find a location you like. Or click "Contact Instructor" to send me an e-mail and I'll get in touch with you about finding a class.  I guarantee you will never dread working out ever again!

I look forward to meeting you!  Strive for progress not perfection...... I'll see you in class.
