I started working in the fitness industry when I was a teenager. I spent all my summers and weekends working at the gym that my parents owned in Waterloo IA. The gym life is in my blood.
I feel very lucky that I can share my love of fitness, nutrition and health coaching with the world. I am passionate about health and fitness and the incredible difference it can make in everyone's life. I absolutely love to help people discover the transformative power of exercise and am so excited to be a part of that process. If you see me at North Dodge Athletic Club, please stop me and ask me if you have any questions, I'm happy to help. Please come try one of my classes. I teach Spin, Zumba, water aerobics, Silver Sneakers & do personal/group training.
In my free time I enjoy lifting, biking, swimming, dancing, running, kickboxing, cooking and reading. I love to cook and I'm always excited to try a new recipe. I am also the proud mother of two young adults, ages 24 and 20.
