About Me

After an injury resulting in hip replacement surgery, it was through Zumba Fitness that I discovered the transformative power of exercise! I went from being unable to walk without pain to exercising daily. For me, teaching Zumba Fitness classes is my way of giving back. Oh, and shedding 35 pounds in the process isn't so bad either! I encourage you to find the thing that makes you move. Take it from me, it's never too late!

Come and join me to see how Zumba classes have changed my life! It really is true that every class feels like a party! So many people say they don't have 'rhythm'. Don't worry, the music is the inspiration. My classes are a judge-free zone. Come try it, I guarantee you will have a blast! I look forward to meeting you!
