Instructing @ CF+Y
Why did you choose a career in fitness?
Honestly, it chose me. I started off as a Lifeguard and swim instructor in high school and through a series of events here I am today! Highlights in my career have been the opportunity to travel the world teaching fitness to instructors in clubs, studios and wellness centers, making exercise videos, developing world class workout programs that are still licensed around the world today, working at NIKE WHQ but also teaching classes and affecting lives right here in Gresham. My career has spanned over 20 years and I cannot imagine doing anything else.
What is your favorite way to workout?
In a group! I love the group dynamic, the support and the atmosphere, the high-fives and when its over the look of achievement from everyone. It’s this look of “yeah, we just did that!”
When you aren’t at the Studio where and what are you doing?
I am hanging out with my two amazing humans and my fur baby! I have two children, Devon and Brooklyn who have always been my motivation and perspiration! We’ve recently adopted a Siberian Husky, Blue, who completes our family. We’re all pretty active and often are enjoying the benefits of our fitness.
What’s one thing you’d like to say to anyone reading this who isn’t a member of CF+Y?
I would want to get the message across that we are a community of people who care not only about what we do, but why we do it. When you exercise regularly you don’t just feel better, you feel better about yourself. And in turn you’re a better Mom, Dad, Sister, Brother, Friend, Employee….human. I really do believe that spending one hour of your life in our studio makes the other 23 even better.
