What I am proud of:

I was incredibly athletic as a teenager and young adult. I enjoyed cheerleading, playing softball, ice skating, skiing, swimming, and always exercised to keep physically fit. In my thirties, I ruptured a disc in my lumbar spine and suffered from debilitating pain. In 2009, after dealing with the pain of that degenerative back injury for 10 years, I underwent a lumbar spinal fusion surgery. The surgery was extremely complicated. It took the surgical team 12 hours to correct the damage to my spine. As a result, I was left with nerve damage and a permanent foot drop. After years of physical therapy and rehab, I discovered that I could do all the exercises and workouts in the water that I could no longer do on land.

This gave me a renewed purpose. I became excited and energized to continue my own strength training and rehabilitation in the pool. I then went on to study and certify as a water fitness class instructor, personal trainer, active aging coach, and arthritis foundation program leader.

I am passionate about the benefits of water fitness for all ages and abilities and will continue to share my knowledge and experience with others who may be rehabilitating from injuries, surgeries or have experienced a debilitating life-changing event stay active, healthy, and independent.
