      Why do you love teaching?
      I love teaching because I get to see the growth in my students over the course of their fitness journey. Teaching allows me to create a space where individuals can feel motivated, confident and have the ability to reflect on their performance. I help students push their limits and allow them to achieve new heights.

      Fun Fact: I practically live at the SRAC.
