I am a certified Spin and Silver Sneakers instructor, and also work as a fitness consultant. I love Fitness Experience because of the great community and family atmosphere. Fitness is an important part of our daily living and we support and encourage one another to accomplish our goals. If you ever have questions about classes and memberships, I would love to speak with you!
I enjoy powerlifting, eating sushi, and spending my free time with my husband, daughter, and son. On a day off, you could find me down at the Bayfront eating clam chowder with my family. I love working in the Kids Club, and when not working, it allows me to have a stress free workout knowing my kiddos are provided a safe and fun environment.
