Q:

Tell us a little bit about who you are and what you do!

A:

"I am the owner or barre3 in North Scottsdale and Paradise Valley; a total body workout that combines strength conditioning, cardio, and mindfulness that will leave you feeling balanced in your body and empowered from within. I am a native to AZ, former elementary school teacher, and when I’m not in one of the studios, I am raising my three kids alongside my husband and business partner, Adam."

Q:

How did you get started in the fitness industry and what’s the story on how you got into Barre3?

A:

"I grew up active; hiking, yoga, dance, tennis, running, you name it. Once I had kids and was a full-time teacher I no longer found much time to workout. I was introduced to barre3 in 2013 through a college friend (go Devils!) who was opening her own studio in Henderson, NV. Barre3 was yet to come to AZ so I took online classes. After completing one of their 30-day challenges I noticed changes in my body as well as a sense of warmth and community from the screen that I had not yet experienced at any of the boutique studios I was attending in the valley.

From there I wanted to bring this incredible workout to AZ not only for the results of this incredible workout but to create a place of community."
