1. In less than a minute, tell us who you are and why we keep hearing good things about you?
I am the creator of Elite Endurance Barre in Dallas. I love that my workout method is a lifestyle for my clients! It’s a complete workout with cardio included, hitting all the right spots. I am a mother of three little girls, so I do not have hours and hours to spend working out.
2. What were the pivotal roadblocks and challenges you encountered along the way that helped you define your path?
My barre class is not traditional! Because of its unique, high-energy style, some employers would try to convince me that it was anything but special. But the fact that many people have taken my class for ten plus years lets me know I am onto something. I didn’t quit! Instead, I dove deep into the science and the “whys” of my workout. These roadblocks made me become a better teacher and helped me write a manual that is science based and approved by exercise organizations. All of this is now allowing me to grow my reach and share my love for dance conditioning!
3. Why did you choose this field? Who were your role models? And what pushed you to learn and become who you are?
As a professional dancer, teaching dance fitness was a natural progression. My role models are all my amazing teachers. I remember how confident they were in their coaching, and I hope to inspire people daily as they inspired me. Dance is part of who I am! I never stop learning, and my drive for success has kept me going. I am thankful that my barre class has allowed me to feel and teach dance daily after my professional dance career.
4. What is your legacy? Do you care about leaving a legacy?
I hope to raise three strong and confident girls. I hope they have a passion and want to lead with kindness and compassion. This is very important to me—nothing else matters if I do not do right by my girls.
5. What can we all do right now to make this world a better place?
We need to give equal opportunity to all! I support youth programs that help kids do better in school and find their talents. I cannot imagine my life without dance, and I want every child to have the same opportunities.
6. In less than a minute, without sounding like a used car salesperson, tell us where to find you and what is the next big thing that everyone should be anticipating from you?
You can find me on my Website and Instagram. I am super excited to be a part of Warrior Flow TV and to learn from the amazing teachers. Once I read about the mission of The Warrior Foundation, it was a no-brainer! This opportunity is helping me expand my teaching platform—something I have been wanting to do for a long time. I am thankful and on my way to expanding my reach with Elite Endurance Barre!
