Instructor Statement: “I know all too well the challenges that come with chronic pain.  As a former athlete and health educator, I also have suffered from severe back injuries and arthritis, among other chronic conditions.  Through a combination of wellness, self-education, nutrition and therapeutic exercise following multiple surgeries, I have learned how to alleviate and overcome my pain to find joy in everyday living again.  Today, I have the pleasure of helping seniors, as well as adults of all ages with chronic conditions learn how to find their joy through movement, wellness and support.

Through group class, one-on-one instruction or events, I endeavor to promote lifelong mobility, independence and optimal fitness for my clients.  Some of the programs I offer include:
