Who Am I?
I am dance studio owner, yoga teacher and fitness model from Charlotte, NC. I began taking dance lessons at the age of five. Since that first lesson, I have amassed over 26 years of dance experience. Currently I own and operate Zeal For Life Dance Company in Matthews, N.C. and serve as the Head Coach for the University of North Carolina at Charlotte 49ers Gold Dusters Dance Team. I took my first yoga class in 2010 and have been obsessed with yoga ever since. I earned my 200 hr RYT certification at Y2 Yoga in Charlotte, NC. Currently, I teach yoga at Zeal For Life Dance Company, private sessions (in the convenience of your own home or studio) and group yoga sessions.
Taking care of my body is not a job; its a lifestyle. I love the challenge of knowing I am physically capable of transforming my body solely from hard work and dedication. I feel stronger physically and mentally after finishing a yoga class or leaving the gym. I never envisioned myself being a fitness model. It just happened one day when I finally listened to my peers and submitted photographs to local jobs. Modeling is my newest endeavor and I am looking forward to more opportunities to promote physically fitness and leading healthier lifestyles.
