After serving 20 years (1984 – 2004) in the US Navy, my husband and I moved to Kingman AZ in 2007. Living a blissfully unhealthy and sedentary ‘retired’ lifestyle, in 2009 I was diagnosed with various medical conditions, including Type II Diabetes and that is when I turned my life around from unfit to fit. I’ve always enjoyed helping others, and it was a natural progression for me to turn my excitement for fitness from just my own personal goals to begin focusing on becoming a fitness trainer.


I began teaching Zumba Fitness in 2011. My preference is Zumba Gold (which is a low impact class designed for beginners and active older adults) Toning (using 1 lb  and 2.5 lb toning sticks) and Core (enhancing balance and stability). 


I am CPR certified; a current AFAA (Aerobics & Fitness Association of America) member and certified Group Exercise Instructor; a distance runner and triathlete.  I believe that exercise is truly the fountain of youth; and I would like to help you achieve your fitness goal.


My specialty training includes: Zumba Fitness Basic 1 & 2, Zumba Gold, Zumba in the Circuit, Zumba Toning, Zumba Gold-Toning, and now Aqual Zumba!  I also use Zumba Core movements.  I prefer to offer a variety of class formats, especially those targeted for beginners and the older adult population, because Zumba Fitness really is for everybody! 

Look for my Aqua Zumba classes to begin soon at the Valle Vista Community pool.  I will also be available for private Aqua Zumba pool sessions, so if you have a pool and would like me to come and teach classe for you and your friends, just let me know.
