Certified Group Fitness Instructor

My passion for Group Fitness began in college when taking classes became part of my weekly routine. I fell in love with the environment and positive energy and shortly after that became an instructor. I have been involved with Group Fitness at the Flagstaff Athletic Club and teaching since 1990. Wow! Did someone say 1990?!

I have taught many different formats at FAC. I am certified Schwinn Cycling and Les Mills BODYJAM instructor. I am also the co-creator of the very popular low impact Group Fitness dance class Move 'n Groove.

I feel so blessed to be able do what I love and work with amazing people (fellow employees, instructors and members). I love music and love to move to the music. So come move with me and who knows we might do a shimmy or two.
