Trainer Bio

My journey to get healthy and fit began at age 48.  I was a first time mother at age 40.  I was out of shape, feeling tired, and unable to keep up with the energy level of my daughter.  To begin with I lost 75 pounds through good diet and exercise.  Once I had the weight off I was able to step up my fitness activity.  I trained in martial arts and earned a Black Belt in Tae Kwan Do.  To build endurance I began running.  This led to running the LA Marathon in 2012. Since then, I have run countless half marathons, 10k and 5k races.  As my knees began to protest the rigorous running training, I began to include road cycling.  Once on the bike outside, I was hooked.  As a result I have taken to the road for several riding adventures ranging from 25 to 105 miles.  It was only a matter of time before I began to hit the pool to learn to swim.  In 2014, I began to put all 3 activities, running, biking and swimming, together and started training for and racing the sprint triathlon distance.  In July 2015 I completed my first Ironman 70.3 distance at Vineman in Santa Rosa, CA.  I continue to train as a triathlete with regular spinning classes providing important cycling training sessions. 

As a certified cycling instructor, I teach my classes with my love for road cycling being the driver of how I structure my classes.  I like to take my students on a ride that challenges their fitness and endurance levels while keeping the atmosphere fun and relaxed.  I have been teaching spin class at ATB since January 2015. Come join me for an outdoor riding experience indoors.  You will work hard, sweat, laugh, and maybe even participate in a little spinning karaoke!   But most importantly you will be doing something positive and fun for yourself! Ride On!
