Qualifications: Certified by AFAA and ACSM. Also certified in Massage Therapy. Two-time National Women's Aerobic Champion.
Personal History: I was born the 8th of 9 children. I was always interested in fitness; my mom and dad started me running track at age 7, doing gymnastics at age 11, and softball at 12 (all because I had too much energy to play at home). When the aerobics 'craze' developed in the early 80's, I became interested in teaching. My first gym teaching job was at age 18. Currently, I'm the mother of two great kids and still happily married.
