I studied and played soccer at Jacksonville State University in Alabama, where I earned a Bachelor of Exercise Science and Wellness. In 2006 – 07 I studied at the University of Sydney to get a Master of Exercise & Sport Science (Clinical Exercise Science). I am an accredited exercise physiologist and a qualified Pilates instructor.
I have had experience coaching 1-12yr olds in gymnastics and coaching 10 – 14yr olds in representative soccer. I worked summer camps in Wisconsin as a camp counsellor and coordinated land sports for children aged 5 – 15yrs. I also have experience coordinating exercise programs for people with a range of injuries or illnesses.
I am married and have one daughter who attends gymbaroo and loves it. In the past I have done gymnastics and soccer but now I keep fit by doing martial arts.
