Working for many years as an artist I would continually stand or sit in one place during the day. I became 40 pounds overweight and felt terrible about myself. My ﬁtness journey began after a visit to a record store where I discovered a dvd by the creator of Tae Bo, Billy Banks. I always had an interest in martial arts and was inspired to get into shape. It didn’t take long before I could feel and see changes in my body. After taking a TaeBo training workshop with Billy Blanks, I then became committed to Taekwondo. Unfortunately a debilitating injury set me back to the point where I could barely walk. I sought relief in Yoga which helped somewhat, but it was when I was introduced to Pilates that things really improved. I fell in love with the simplicity of the movements. Motivated with a thirst for health and ﬁtness knowledge I achieved the following certiﬁcations: Fitness Instructor Specialist, Pilates • Barre, Stability Ball and Mini Ball, Schwinn Cycle, Strong by Zumba.
“My immediate goal is to work as an integral part of a highly motivated team, where my effort and skills will be utilized to contribute to the team’s effectiveness. I have a dedication and commitment to helping people achieve their ﬁtness goals. My mission in life is to live with integrity while making a difference in the lives of others.”
