What is your Instagram handle?


Why did you become an instructor at Barre Groove?

I became an instructor at Barre Groove because this place is my happy place! I come from a background in more formal Barre teaching and Barre Groove’s uniqueness to make fitness fun and sexy changed my life. The moment I discovered Barre Groove I just knew I had to be a part of the magic. 

What is your background in fitness and/or dance?

I love moving my body in any ways I can fitness wise and used to cheerlead for a little bit! I love to dance but more in a social setting 🙂

What motivates you as an instructor?

What motivates me as an instructor is the clients. Seeing them smile, feel empowered and confident. Letting themselves loose in our fun upbeat classes is unlike no other. They empower me as much as I hope I empower them. 

What type of music will we hear in your classes?

I looooove a good throwback! Early 2000s jams, TSwift, Bieber, Megan Stallion, EDM remixes and more! I am huge on music and making sure my playlists give that “omg I love this song!” vibe throughout the whole class to keep us motivated and in the moment.
