I love fitness because it’s transformative and magic.
I am a native of Michigan and moved North to the Alpena area after graduating from Central Michigan University with a degree specializing in Health Fitness and Prevention. During college, I always wanted to teach group exercise classes instead of just taking them but didn’t know how to get started. Lucky for me, I began working at a start up with a serious passion for group exercise. My dream came true when I began teaching yoga in 2007 and can’t imagine life without it.
I started with Bay Athletic Club back in 2006 and as a longtime manager of the club, I’ve helped lead the business to success by directing the Corporate Fit Challenge program, locally and nationally, teaching classes and fostering the financial well-being of the organization. I love working at the club and seeing how much change in our culture and community can stem from spreading the love of fitness.
Fitness certifications: BS in Health Fitness and Prevention from Central Michigan University, ACE Personal Trainer Certified since 2007 and YogaFit certified since 2007.
In my downtime, I enjoy peace at home by the lake, time with my husband, Jody, and two special dogs. I love the adventure of a great book and the breeze on my face taking a fast ride on my Cannondale on bike path along the Harbor. My favorite thing to do is to trail-blaze with a backpack full of supplies and set up a cook-out on a remote beach of Lake Huron.
