TELL US ABOUT YOURSELF. WHERE HAVE YOU PREVIOUSLY LIVED AND WHY DID YOU DECIDE TO MOVE TO MILWAUKEE?
I am from a small town outside of Green Bay called Luxemburg-Casco. I have lived most of my life in the Green Bay Area. Three years ago I moved to Tucson, AZ for 9 months and missed my Midwest roots. I was able to move back to the area by living in Evanston, IL for almost two years. I made some great friends and enjoyed the Chicago life. I moved to Milwaukee in April because of family and work, and I'm loving every minute of it!!
WHAT OTHER WAYS DO YOU GET A GOOD WORKOUT IN, OUTSIDE OF SPIRE?
I like to run, do yoga, and enjoy HIIT/interval training. I am also group fitness certified, an ACE Personal Trainer, and have a spinning certification.
WHAT KIND OF MUSIC SHOULD ATTENDEES EXPECT IN YOUR SPIN CLASSES?
A mix of everything!! Today's hits, 80's, hip hop, and country.
IF YOU COULD MOVE ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD, WHERE WOULD IT BE?
Anywhere that is 80 and sunny everyday!!
WHAT IS YOUR GO TO COMFORT FOOD?
All types of cheese!
WHAT ARE WORDS YOU LIVE BY?
I believe that anyone can improve their fitness level no matter what their physical condition may be. I feel that workouts that are functional and complement your lifestyle will make daily life more enjoyable, improving your quality of life. I truly enjoy making my workouts interesting, challenging, and fun! My favorite quote reads, "The great thing in this world is not so much where you stand, as in what direction you are moving." ~Oliver Wendell

WHY DID YOU DECIDE TO BECOME AN INSTRUCTOR?
I have been a competitive athlete all my life. I had the opportunity to continue my love for basketball and play at the collegiate level. After college, I wanted to stay in the fitness industry. I pursued teaching cycling and small group fitness classes. I have been teaching since January of 2008 and I still have the same passion and joy for fitness that I did eight years ago!
WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE HOLIDAY AND WHY?
Fourth of July. I love summer and cooking out while being with friends and family.
