Qualifications: Certified by ACE and AFAA. Has been a group fitness instructor since 1985. Also has a full-time job as a Physical Therapist Assistant for Kansas University Sports Medicine in Kansas City, Kansas.
Personal History: I began as part of a 'Group Fitness Team' at a fitness center. Our 'team' would go out in public, doing little demo routines for the gym. It was really fun and a great way to meet people! My teaching career started in 1985. I would always take the 5:30 pm high-impact class after getting off work. One day, the instructor didn't show, so I was asked to teach the class and it was great. This happened quite a bit more. Eventually, I ended up permanently getting the class. I really like step-aerobics. I began with my first class in 1991 when a student had to help me with the Turnstep! From that point, I was determined to make step aerobics the most fun workout on the planet! I live in Kansas City, Missouri. I have four grown children: Elizabeth, Thomas, Mary, and Anna.
Workout Philosophy: My workout philosophy may be a little different than most. I never wanted to make fitness one of my top priorities, because I saw many people get too much within themselves. I always believed in spirituality and giving to others first. Don't let your weight get you down! Throw out the scale! It's all a process. You need to be having fun! If what you are doing isn't fun for you, then find a different way to make it fun for you! Don't give up too soon, because starting out is the most difficult part! That's why it needs to be FUN!
Success Story: From Susan in Portland, Oregon (Susan took my Step By Design Workshop): “Your attention to the simple details of flow made the entire process of putting my own choreography together so much easier. I couldn't wait to pull out the notes when I got home and make up more combos! I think I have enough now to last a year! Thanks so much for your sincere devotion to step aerobics. Your workshops are much needed and I hope you come back to this area very soon!"
