My Teaching Style

I will hold you accountable to proper form and body alignment so we remove the risk of injury and guarantee long lasting results. I believe there are two intimate experiences you can share with others; breaking bread and breaking a sweat. I am here with you, in the moment, breathing in and sweating it out, right alongside of you! Together we will have an awesome time hitting it hard.


Growing up I loved playing sports. I participated in basketball, volleyball, softball, and golf. Though I was naturally athletic, I had always struggled with my weight. In my early twenties I hit rock bottom with my health and weight. I decided to let go of a party lifestyle and dive into my faith, health, and wellness. My journey has grown tremendously since then. In 2005 I earned a 4.0 and diploma in the Group Health Club Technician program at Madison College. I began teaching Pilates, Step Aerobics, Cardio Kickboxing, and Circuit Training through the Park and Recreation in Cottage Grove, Wisconsin. I’ve taught outdoor bootcamps, indoor high intensity interval and weightlifting classes, and indoor cycling classes. It was always a dream of mine to become a certified yoga instructor. During my most recent pregnancy I finally took the leap and became a certified YogaFaith yoga instructor! I love fitness and even more than that, I love being around people. Community means a lot to me!

Favorite Exercise

Half Moon! I feel strong throughout my core and lengthened throughout my spine and lower body. Balancing poses are fun and challenging–which I love.

Why I Love Dragonfly

I love that Dragonfly offers more than yoga fitness options. Yin is the best compliment to a Power Up class. And BarreAmped develops muscles that you didn't know you had! If you've been, you know what I'm talking about. All body types and fitness levels are welcome and I love the acceptance of this environment.

Little Known Fact About Me

I am a local beauty industry business owner. I own Be Inspired Salon and Pure Nails. I also own mya–an international marketing software company for the beauty industry and through this platform I host one of the top business podcasts for salon and spa owners.
