Born and raised in California but also lived in New York City. I am a Bay Area girl with a NYer heart who now lives in Dallas, TX with my husband, son, and two fur babies.
My professional dance career started just three weeks after graduating from Loyola Marymount University with a B.A. in Business and minor in Communication Arts. My very first job as a dancer was on the world tour of the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers where I played Rita Repulsa and continued to travel, tour, perform, and appear on numerous TV shows and films for the next 15 years. I then started teaching on dance conventions until breaking into the fitness world. My longest “gig” was four incredible years as a dancer for Britney Spears. I was one of Brit’s original dancers appearing alongside her on tours, television, and her first five music videos (Baby…One More Time, Sometimes, You Drive Me Crazy, Born To Make You Happy, and Oops…I Did It Again).
My fitness career began when I met my lifelong BFF Shaun T (INSANITY, My Diet Is Better Than Yours) on a dance job, The 10 Commandments starring Val Kilmer, Adam Lambert, and Alisan Porter. I went on to join Shaun T on his Beachbody projects Hip Hop Abs, Rockin’ Body, INSANITY, T25, and CIZE.My husband, Derek, is the man with the ah-mazing squats in T25. We have a son, Benjamin, better known as BJAM. I am a huge book nerd who also loves LEGO, pajamas, and fuzzy socks. And I'm a book sniffer!
