Hometown: Arlington Heights, IL

Mom to: Emme, 3 years old

How did you first get introduced to FIT4MOM/Stroller Strides?

My best friend had been attending for about a year when I joined and she had always encouraged me to try it out

What made you want to become an instructor?

After I had my daughter I needed something to give structure to my day and provide some adult interaction along with something I felt was helping me.

I found all of this in Stroller Strides and then later in Body Back once she got older.

I became an instructor because I wanted to be able to help other moms be able to get out, socialize, and learn from eachother all while getting a great workout and taking care of themselves.

What did you do before becoming an instructor?

I worked as a nurse practitioner specializing in liver disease.

What is your favorite part of instructing? Favorite song/exercise?

Helping others leave all their stress, frustration and worry from the day behind and leave feeling better physically and mentally.

Song/exercise- Old McDonald when the kids get to pick an animal paired up with wall sits and bicep curls.

What is your favorite non-kid workout song that gets you moving?
