ME FITNESS STUDIOS INSTRUCTOR

WHERE ARE YOU FROM?  WHY PORTLAND?

I’m Portland born and raised. It’s my home 

WHAT MAKES YOUR CLASS SO AWESOME?

There is honestly no other class like Twerk N Fab ® We combine twerk dance culture with dance fitness, and create a vibe that’s uplifting, inclusive, and empowering. 

WHAT IS YOUR TEACHING STYLE?

Accessible and Empowering is what I would call my teaching style. I love that I am able to bring fitness to anybody and make people feel amazing! 

& WHAT'S THAT EXTRA SPECIAL SAUCE YOU POUR ON ALL OF YOUR CLASSES!?

“Embrace the jiggle!” While most are trying to hide it, or get rid of it.. I say embrace it. My jiggle is my superpower lol. 

WHAT QUOTE IS MOST LIKELY TO COME OUT OF YOUR MOUTH DURING A CLASS?

“I need all the sass and ass” 

IS THERE A SPECIFIC MOMENT THAT GOT YOU INTO FITNESS? 

I have always loved to dance, but never imagined that love would lead me into fitness. I was in such a bad place in my life when I fell in love with dance fitness. It was my self-care, my motivation, my guiding light.. like straight THERAPEUTIC! From there I decided not only to live a fitness-based lifestyle but to teach it. I wanted to see all that fitness had to offer, and share it with the world. 

WHEN YOU'RE NOT FITNESSING, WHAT ARE YOU UP TO? Family EVERYTHING!

I have 2 teenage boys, amazing home life, and a loving family. We enjoy so much together… from traveling to movies, concerts, etc. 

WHEN YOU'RE FEELING DOWN, WHAT'S ONE THING YOU SAY TO YOURSELF TO GET YOU GOING?

“Love yourself like you want to be loved by others”
