My fitness journey began with a love of both dance and running. I started running on track teams at the age of 13 and danced my way through high school and college. My passion for health and wellness runs nearly as deep. As a high school senior I knew that I wanted to help make people’s lives better, this desire prompted me to take a Certified Nurses Aid course; taking this course launched my career into health and wellness. I began working as a home health aide, where I discovered my passion for working with the senior population. After graduating from The University of Illinois at Chicago with a B.A. in Kinesiology, I knew that I wanted to combine my love of movement with my desire to care for people. I have worked in health care for over 15 years, specializing in working with the 65+ population. ! I have also been a contributing author and model for the diabetic exercise manuals; “10 Minute Workouts for People with Diabetes” and “Defeating Diabetes”. Helping people improve their health and reach their goals is one of my greatest joys in life!
