About Me

I have been in love with dancing my entire life.  I started taking jazz, tap and ballet when I was in my teens. In college, I studied abroad in Mexico and discovered Latin music. Having fallen totally in love with Latin culture, I pursued my degree in Spanish and Linguistics, and I got a fellowship working as a teacher in the Dominican Republic. It was there that I learned to salsa and bachata, and I returned to the states with a new addiction: Latin dance.  I met my husband salsa dancing during my last year of college, and over a decade later, it is still an integral part of our lives. We now dance in our living room with our kids! While living in Durango, CO, I helped start and run a weekly salsa night event.  


When I discovered Zumba [®] Fitness after moving to Wisconsin, I found my newest love. It doesn't matter your age or background or experience--you can just listen to the music and let go. It really does feel like a party, and it is an amazing workout. I am so fortunate to be able to share my passion with other people. If you haven't tried Zumba [®] Fitness before, I hope you'll come give it a try.
