I am a Personal Trainer who loves to help people reach there goals. I have been a Trainer for 7 1/2 years. Prior to becoming a trainer I was a Registered Nurse. Many of my clients actually seek me out because of my Nursing background. I enjoyed being a nurse, but Personal Training has proven to be far more rewarding and it gives me a reason to stay fit. If I have to be a role model to many other people, its so much easier to maintain a healthy and active lifestyle. I also enjoy Dancing and I teach dance as well. I take Flamenco Lessons and I teach Belly dance.
