The Journey to Becoming an Instructor

I fell in love with Zumba and group fitness about 5 years ago. When I moved back to Coralville to start my Spanish teaching job 2 years ago I started taking classes again and was asked to get my instructor certificate. It was a wonderful opportunity that I could not pass up, and I have been fortunate enough to have been teaching amazing students ever since! I love that Zumba encourages passion, movement, and individuality. Most of all, it is FUN!

What do you like to do in your free time? I love going to movies, Netflix-ing, reading crocheting and coloring. 

If you had one wish, what would it be? I'd love to live in the same state as my family! It'd also be nice to not have to grade papers every weekend!

What is your favorite exercise? Zumba! :)

If you had to choose one word to describe yourself, what would it be? Driven. 

If you were stranded on an island, who would you want to be stranded with and what 5 things would you want to have with you? I wouldn't mind being stranded with the cast of Parks and Recreation and I'd want to have sunscreen, plenty of good food and water, a volleyball, and a change of clothes.
