I began my fitness career in 1979 at Jack LaLanne's in San Diego, where we roller skated to work on the Strandway. After working as the fitness program director at the Playboy Club in Lake Geneva (which then became Americana), I moved to the health & fitness director position at the YMCA and then to managing a worksite health and physical rehabilitation facility at a paper company. I'm now a doctoral dissertator and work in continuing legal education and continuing medical education research. I teach primarily group strength, but also teach my all-time favorites: high/low and step. My goal is to connect people with one another and to help them understand the value of everything we do in our fitness classes. It is a joy to have lifelong involvement in a profession that continues to be rewarding and exciting.
