I began teaching dance fitness in 1982 and became Zumba licensed in 2010. I began dancing at the age of 8 and instructed dance classes as a teenage and in my twenties - until I discovered dance-fitness....when I found it was the best of both worlds! I also became certified as a personal trainer and nutritionist and have worked for the Aerobic & Fitness Association of America as an Examiner and Workshop Presenter providing workshops in choreography, circuit training and weight management.
Over the last four decades, I've instructed dance classes, Jazzercise, my own fitness programs, worked for the Aerobic & Fitness Association of America (AFAA) and was an aerobic competition judge for USCAF. Currently, I am involved teaching Zumba fitness. I also provide personal training and nutrition counseling privately and in group sessions.
