  • Where are you from originally: I was born in North Carolina and lived there and in Florida and South Carolina as a small child but we moved to Dallas the summer before 6th grade so I guess I grew up mostly in Dallas.
  • Why do you love the Megaformer: I love the Megaformer because it is such a challenge and I am super competitive.  It has drastically strengthened my core.  I love how strong I feel while I am doing a workout (even though I want to quit the entire time).
  • Three things I cannot live without: My family, my friends or my exercise.
  • My favorite post workout snack: Acai bowl.
  • My biggest pet peeve: (I have several) would have to be people who are unkind.
  • I visited my dream vacation: To return to the Cinque Terre in Italy.  My husband and I hiked there on our honeymoon 2 years ago.  It is the most beautiful place you can imagine.
  • My favorite thing to do when I am not at Studio 6: Spend time with my family and friends.
  • Three words to describe me:  Friendly, Funny, And Energetic
  • Unusual childhood memory:  I lived in Florida from the age of 3-6 and I remember roaming the apartment complex all the time with a group of other kids.  I barely let my son do this today (and he is 18).
  • Something most people don’t know about me: I went to 6 different elementary schools before starting 6th grade.
  • My personal fitness advice: Focus on the big picture.  Fitness includes exercise, nutrition, sleep and drinking plenty of water. Take care of your body and it will take care of you.
