I am an ACE certified Medical Exercise Specialist and Group Exercise Instructor. I work as a wellness coach, speaker, workshop presenter and health and wellness freelance writer from my home base at Glen Ivy Hot Springs Spa in Corona, CA. I have worked in the spa industry for over 25 years, teaching and offering workshops at premier spas across the country including Rancho La Puerta, in Tecate, Mexico, The Oaks at Ojai, Green Valley Spa, in St. George, Utah, and The Spa at Sea Island, Georgia. I love working with a variety of populations, but I particularly enjoy reaching out to inactive and specialty populations to help them learn how to make simple, feel-good choices that lead to positive health outcomes. Please connect with me about my fun and interactive wellness workshops (including titles such as "I Know What I Should Do! I Just Need to Do It!"
