About me:
Hello! I grew up in High Point, NC as a competitive gymnast and competed for 7 years. My active background as a gymnast made me passionate for health and wellness at an early age. I completed my BS in Biology and Exercise & Sport Science at University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. During my undergraduate career, I became a certified ACE Group Fitness Instructor and have taught many classes including Cardio interval training, muscle pump, kickboxing, Zumba, Pilates, Absolution, and Barre.  I have been teaching barre for almost 2 years now and received training at Recharge Pilates and Barre in Durham, NC.
