I love any outdoor activity, writing, and yes, a bottle of good wine. My other passions include learning something new each day, cooking Italian dishes, and meeting interesting people.



Certified Les Mills BodyPump instructor for the past 5 years and fitness instructor for over 20 years. I want to use my skills and experiences to help others on their fitness journeys.

I am a New Jersey native who became interested in fitness while pursuing a master’s degree in journalism several years ago.

I have been a YMCA member for as long as I can remember, but it wasn’t until using some of the on-campus jogging trails that I realized I love … really loved exercise.

Running would then lead to weight training and any other fitness activity that presented itself.

I eventually chose to combine my passions for journalism and exercise, which I have been doing for over 30 years!


Fitness has been a big part of my life. From recreational activities during my youth, high school sports, and then to a Division 1 athlete, physical activity has always been a big part of who I am.

Now that I’m at a different stage of life, I still love being active. But, my range of interests has expanded to include fitness (always), writing (thank you for being here), and cooking.

On the topic of cooking – In the past few years, I really developed I had a passion for cooking. I have always loved preparing food for my family and guests. So much so, that I have started a new site dedicated solely to cooking. I will be sharing this site soon when the new site is live. I’m very excited about it!
