I was born in San Angelo, TX and lived there for a few months before starting my international adventure as an Air Force brat. I've lived in 3 States (TX, MA & NH) and 3 countries (USA, Italy & Belgium), landing in Lynn, MA upon my father's retirement. My active lifestyle was initiated as a child, partaking in various activities: dance & gymnastics led to softball, basketball, tennis, volleyball, soccer & cross-country, but it wasn't until adulthood that I discovered pilates and yoga.
I got certified as a yoga Instructor in 2011, AFAA Group Ex Instructor in 2013, and 2015 was the year I started instructing Pilates & Stroller Strides and became an ACE Certified Personal Trainer.
My husband and I bought our Tewksbury home in 2014 and I had my daughter, Naoemi, that same year. In May 2015, I received a class package to Stroller Strides for my birthday and eagerly attended with my 5-month old. It didn't take long for us both to fall in love with the Wilmington Fit4Mom Village. I became an active advocate for the group and, after only 4 months, I became certified as an instructor.
Thanks to the addition of cardio and resistance training to my regimen, I lost my pregnancy weight quickly and became more toned than ever. I love the support, stress relief, time with other moms, and more than anything, my daughter gets to learn, play and make friends.
Now, with #2 on the way (due in October 2016), I look forward to growing with Fit4Mom, remaining active and inspiring others to maintain healthy lifestyles.
