I'm a wife, step-mom of 2 fantastic girls, and doggie mom. I've been doing some form of marketing/advertising for about 25 years as well as Human Resources. So life can get pretty busy and stressful. I first started Zumba to be more fit and healthy and then over time it became a great way to lose the stress of the day and just laugh with my classmates.
I've been a student/groupie for over 10 years. I say groupie because I've had the excellent fortune to attend classes and events with some of the best instructors around. Between classes and events I've made some incredible friendships all because of Zumba.
I'm always in awe of all the different changes people experience from this workout. I myself have lost 26 pounds and am the most fit I've ever been. I've met people who do this for weight loss, fitness, health, and simply to have some "me" time. Whatever the reason, everyone I know says the same thing. It's fun!
And now, here I am - an instructor. In addition, I have the pleasure and honor to be able to co-teach with another fantastic instructor, Christina Hampe. With the 2 of us, I can pretty much guarantee a rockn' good time. Where else can you sweat and laugh about it as you torch some serious calories with others.
