When I first tried Zumba, 7 years ago, I felt like I had woken up.  As an over-busy homeschool mom of 4, I was stressed, cranky, and tired all the time.  Zumba gave me the creative and physical release that I needed.  My body changed, my energy increased, and I found that I was suddenly a happier, more patient mother- I enjoyed being with my kids again.  I was hooked, and my family was happy to help me make the time to be in classes regularly.  Having come from a background in theater and dance from the age of 9, teaching classes was the next logical step. In doing so, I was shocked to discover that I also loved fitness, and became certified as a personal trainer.  The joy that I get from watching others become happier and healthier has made every day of teaching group exercise classes for the last 5 years worthwhile.  It is my dream job, and I wouldn't trade it for anything!
