Fitness and physical activity have always played important roles in my life. Having been raised by a mother who was a physical education teacher and athletic director, living a sedentary lifestyle was not an option! I was active in sports in high school and college, and I have sought to help others maintain a healthy and functional lifestyle in my twenty year career as an occupational therapist. It is very motivating for me to work out in a group setting, as I find it encouraging and fun to be working as a team and working toward a common goal. I previously enjoyed teaching Zumba for three years, and I look forward to leading a weekly HIIT class. Hope to see you there!
