I started my fitness journey after living an unhealthy lifestyle for several years.  To make necessary changes, I decided to learn about nutrition and exercise to improve my health and overall wellness.  I’ve taught group exercise since early 90’s starting with volunteering at the NW YMCA to teaching at several corporate fitness centers in the Bay Area. 

I’ve been teaching Pilates, Step, Cycling, HIIT, Bootcamp, Body Conditioning both in a teacher and studio director capacity, all while working a FT job in MedDevice/Biotechnology as a Global Product Marketing Manager.

In early 2000, I discovered my love for boxing, Krav Maga and Muai Thai.  I’ve had several years of intense, highly educated instructors who have been mentors for me.  I enjoy paying it forward helping students reach their full potential.
