Qualifications: Graduate from the University of Saskatchewan with a degree in Physical Therapy in 1986. Certified by ACE, BCRPA, and Can-Fit Pro (Canadian fitness organizations). Nike-sponsored athlete from 1988 to present. 18 years of teaching experience.
Personal History: My interest in fitness has been life-long. However, my true introduction into 'aerobics' happened in 1979 when, as a 'country bumpkin,' I visited my sister-in-law in the big city. She took me to my first class. I remember clearly the room, the music, and the excitement. I loved it from the very first moment. Becoming an instructor has opened more doors and led me to meet more people than any other single thing I have done. Fitness has helped me physically and financially. But, most importantly, I have been fortunate to teach my way through college, marriage, motherhood, and soon-to-be, 'middle age.'
