      I was X-pole certified to teach in 2013, and I have been teaching pole fitness for over 4 years.  I taught an average of 25 pole fitness classes per week for the first 3 years that Expressions Fitness was open; therefore, my experience is quality and extensive. I love teaching pole fitness.  It is by far one of my favorite activities.

I want to make pole dance accessible to everyone giving students the opportunity to get the most out of their pole dance experience.  Pole dance is a personal journey of self discovery, self acceptance, self love, and self improvement gaining confidence, strength, and flexibility.  Expressions Fitness is a space where we perpetuate an environment of support and encouragement for every accomplishment.   

      In my own pole journey, I have participated in several competitions wining 2nd place in the level 4 Championship division with Pole Sport Organization at their regional competition in Chicago.  I went on to win 4th place at Nationals.  I have also participated in the professional division with USPSF.   At Expressions Fitness we have an environment of inclusive acceptance.  All are welcome competitors and those who just want to have a fun work out.    

    My favorite part of Expressions Fitness is the incredible people that walk through the door.  I relish the wonderful opportunity to interact with the amazing athlete/artists.  Most people who come here are fearless leaders who are emotionally strong enough to have fun while continuing to work at self improvement through exercise.  Everyone is both realistically optimistic and supportive.  Confidence is gained through pole fitness and increases in those who are already confident.  All shapes and sizes are great for pole.  It's about becoming pole strong and celebrating the wonderful, incredible, amazing person you already are right now.

  I'm so proud and excited to be a part of Expressions Fitness studio! In 2010 I started my pole journey and ever since I've been addicted! In May of 2015 I was able to represent Expressions fitness at the 2015 Central Pole Championships in Chicago, and brought home a 2nd place medal! 

  I'm excited to take the time and teach something I'm very passionate about. Pole is a career path I want to pursue and my dreams are finally happening! Pole is so unique and different then all other sports. It makes you feel strong, confident, and sexy. Pole has helped me build my confidence, I've found my inner beauty and after a long day it's the best stress reliever. I want Every individual that walks into my class to feel accepted, beautiful and unstoppable. I want to motivate everyone I see to challenge themselves, to step out of their comfort zone and feel comfortable doing it. Everyone is so unique and I love seeing the differences in people and how everyone expresses themselves. I hope to not only teach you but to learn from you as well. Don't be afraid to bring out those heals and show me what you got!  You all are beautiful and I hope to see you in class!!

Joining the Expressions Fitness Pole Team is an absolute honor. I love all the beautiful and unique women at the studio who have helped me to grow both physically and emotionally. Pole is my addiction! It has many things to offer such as strength, flexibility, balance, artistic expression, stress relief and so much more.
I have always been blessed with flexibility but pole has pushed me focus on my abilities and I have learned what muscles I use  to increase my own flexibility so that I can help others achieve their flexibility goals. 

  I am currently working on my bachelors degree in pharmaceuticals focused in medicines derived from natural sources.  I try to fill my free time with as many new adventures as I can. I like hiking, rock climbing, aerial silks, frisbee and just about anything athletic or outdoors. I am very interested in matters of the spirit and I am currently working on my mastery in Reiki (Japanse energy healing). I love new things and i"m excited to start this new adventure with everyone!

Hello, everyone! I am thrilled to be teaching at Expressions Fitness and having the privilege of being part of such a supportive atmosphere. 

I received my Zumba certification in B1 in September 2016 and continue to be part of the Zin network for continued education. I also have my CPR certification.

I have loved dance far longer than most anything and continue to find ways to improve my own practice through college education in a Dance Minor at Baldwin-Wallace University.  I started taking ballet when I was only three.  I love all forms of dance it is my artistic expression. I have experience in ballet, jazz, hip-hop, cumbia, salsa, reggaton, and I keep learning other styles of dance. I like providing a positive experience for everyone.  I hope to see you in class!
