My Story

I taught my first water exercise class at 17 years young. I still remember it – my mixed tape for music, empty milk jugs for equipment and arms swinging overhead.

Whether immersed in one of my favorite workouts, listening to the sound of crashing waves at the beach or hanging out with manatees, I have a passion for being in, near or around water.

I’m curious about how the body works. It’s why a relaxing beach visit turns into an assessment of people’s walking patterns and why I’m always searching for new ways to move better.

After 30 years of teaching, I realized that safe and results-driven workouts could be simplified into a basic formula. MOVING IN SIX DIRECTIONS trains the body the way it moves and works in real life. I promise, this formula will change how you do water exercise – forever!

I learned how to confidently filter through trending ideas and stick to what works because others took the time to mentor me.

I can’t wait to help you learn how to make the formula work for YOU. Let me be your mentor.

Already using the MOVE IN SIX DIRECTIONS formula? There is nothing I enjoy more than hearing YOUR success stories. E-mail and tell me your story.
