What do I do best?
I try to always have positive, motivating energy everythime I teach. I think it’s important to be a strong leader with a smile on my face.
What makes me the best version of myself?
I really try to appreciate everyone that helps me along the way and show that gratitude to them. This business isn’t about ego and being rude. Be kind, be genuine, and be grateful!
What are my aspirations?
I have many! I want to continue running a successful business that inspires people to workout. I hope that people all over the world are jumping and dancing with me! Personally, I really want to be a mother one day!
My Biggest Success?
My biggest success was starting my own business. It was very scary and took a lot of work and still is a lot of work, but it is what I am most proud of.
My Most Challenging Moment?
When I started my classes no one would come. I would arrive at the studio and sit and wait, hoping that someone would walk into the door. I would come home to my husband defeated, like the biggest loser! I really believed in my class and method, but it was not catching on. However, I did not give up hope! I knew I had something special. I kept working on my class to make it the best it could be and after some time people started coming. To do this day when I walk into a sold out class it brings tears to my eyes.
