Tell us about your family: Jose and I married seven years ago, and we have Grace (almost 5) and Adam (2). We love hiking, exploring new trails, music, and the beach. Phish and Dave Matthews are on repeat at our house. The kids and I are obsessed with Azalea Park and are there multiple times a week either attending class or riding bikes and running.

Currently live in: Sandy Springs
Preferred Class Location: Dunwoody & Roswell
Current/Previous Career: Teacher: I taught for 12 years before taking time off to be home with Grace and Adam.
Introvert or Extrovert? Introvert, but Grace’s personality pushes me to be more extroverted.
Tell us something about yourself that would surprise us: In 2014, while living in New Jersey with Jose, I was selected to play a trivia game on the ABC talk show, The Chew.
Favorite exercise: Running
Must-have baby product: My single and double jogging strollers

How did you find FIT4MOM? My sister, Elizabeth, invited me to attend class in Roswell with her. After that, I was hooked.
What do you love about FIT4MOM? I love that I am able to push myself physically and mentally at each class with my kids along for the ride. Grace and Adam enjoy coming with me, always shout at me to run faster, and love playing with their friends. I’ve also become friends with some amazing women that can turn any rough morning around with their smiles and kind words.
What does motherhood mean to you? Motherhood means finding strength and tranquility within yourself that you didn’t know existed. It means slowing down, taking a breath, and looking at the world and situations through your children’s eyes. It means trying to strike the right balance between meeting your family’s needs and your need for “me time.” Finally, motherhood means living in the moment and enjoying whatever life throws your way.
