I grew up dancing for 10+ years at Royal City School of Ballet in Guelph (Ontario, Canada) and have attained my Advanced 2 level in ISTD Modern Theatre Jazz with honours.
I found my passion for instructing fitness classes in 2004 through another dance fitness program. In 2006, I decided to take a break to do some travelling. However, after only a year, my urge to instruct became stronger than my urge to travel. I moved back to Ontario to get back into fitness. Shortly after my return home, I found Zumba and was hooked from the first class. After enjoying Zumba classes as a student for about a year, I decided to attend the instructor training and have fallen back in love with instructing.
In 2016, I was lucky enough to have the opportunity to become a Zumba Jammer. One of my favourite parts of my job is to mentor and help other instructors improve their skills and I was able to do so through my jam sessions. In 2017 the dream of owning a fitness studio became a reality and ultimately my new priority so I opted to give up my Zumba Jammer position to focus on my new business venture. Over the years, I have continued to expand my own skills through other fitness formats such as Cycle, TRX, Pound, and more.
