®ZUMBA Fitness Instructor
Fell in love with ®ZUMBA
I fell in love with ®ZUMBA on a trip to Florida several years ago. I was there for work (I’m a professor of educational leadership at UMass in my “real” life) – and decided to try a class. I was hooked! I went way outside my comfort zone, got licensed, and have been teaching in the Valley ever since. ®ZUMBA classes are meant to feel like a fitness-party. The dance set is made up of Latin-inspired, easy-to-follow, rhythmic and aerobic movements set to international music. ®ZUMBA truly exhilarates the senses and works all major muscle groups in a cardio blast that leaves you feeling invigorated, refreshed and full of life. Most important are the PEOPLE that make up a ®ZUMBA fitness class. We will shake it, and sweat, and smile, and have so much fun together!
When not doing ®ZUMBA
When not doing ®ZUMBA you can find me on the trails mountain biking and hiking, spending time with my wonderful friends and family (hubby, two kids, two dogs), or snuggled up in my living room with a good book (and a dog or two) in my lap.
