About Me

I am a Christian, wife, mother, daughter, sister, educator, and lover of all things creative! I found a Zumba class about 1 year ago after a very traumatic time with my husband, and I was HOOKED! I have fallen in LOVE with this program. In September of 2009, I walked into my home and found my husband on the floor of the bathroom. Due to his health, his pancreas had ruptured. We were told that if he had been 2 hours later getting to the ER, he would have died. Once he was released, we began talking to a nutritionist and exercising daily. In December, I found my first Zumba class. Within 4 months, I lost 40 pounds! To date, I have lost 90 pounds and have gone from a size 24 to a 10! I also recently obtained another goal, I passed the AFAA Primary Group Fitness Certification!!! I never would have dreamed that I would be where I am doing what I love! In July 2012, I gave birth to our second son. Now, I am back to teaching and working out daily. I owe my health to this program! I am a firm believer that if you remain dedicated and consistent, you WILL reach your goals! Before Zumba, I was a dying couch potato... Today, I am an AFAA and CPR/AED Certified Zumba Instructor! If you want to get in shape and have fun, I urge you to come to a class. It will change your life!!!
