Born and raised in upstate New York, I gained a passion for an active, healthy lifestyle at an early age. I have always been involved in all types of sports and have had a love for the outdoors as far back as I can remember. Being a classroom teacher since 2007, I’ve had the opportunity to work with children of all ages, skills, and disabilities. This has enabled me to see first-hand the major need to educate our youth on the importance of being healthy, active and empowered. My passion for health and fitness, coupled with my teaching background, has led me to become a certified Group Fitness Instructor. I strongly believe in the necessity for an active lifestyle, regardless of age. My goal is to empower others to fall in love with fitness and exercise by providing a challenging, yet fun and unique workout. You only learn your limits by going beyond them!
