DDS Owner & Instructor
Bio: I have always had a love of dance and fitness and anytime I could combine the two, I was thrilled. Several years back I was taking a weekly hip hop class from my friend Kili Marti. I LIVED for Thursday nights just to take her class and have fun while working out. I would show up early with my girlfriend and we would secure our spots in the front of the class, and for an hour, we would feel like video vixens. We could escape our usual routine of weight lifting, running, cycling, etc... You know, fitness that works but isn't quite as fun. Unfortunately Kili had to leave the club to pursue other things. I found myself constantly looking for something else, classes that were "out of the box", where I could have fun while still burning calories. What I found was not much.
Then my darling cousin invited me to try a pole dancing class. Of course I was thrilled! Something different! So off we went, and who knew I would feel the way I did. In love with pole dancing! The movement came natural and I knew this would not be the end of my pole dancing adventure. So, I went home and asked my husband what he thought about me buying a pole. Shocking I know, but he thought it was a great idea! I got my pole and started to practice. I am mostly self taught with the help of others along the way.
I began teaching in studios around town and loved every second of it. I ended up at Diva Den Studio where I eventually bought into and expanded to all different types of classes for women. My love of dance and fitness are now combined in so many classes at our studio.
The most important part of my life is my family. I am happily married with two boys and a girl that I could not be more proud of. While I love being a mother, I know how easy it is to forget about yourself and to feel sexy and beautiful. My goal is to help women get their groove back and take care of themselves as well. I love to see women of all ages and sizes come into my class and transform over the weeks to that former confident sexy woman they once were.
I adore women and what girlfriends can do for you. I credit the women in my life for keeping me sane! I love that we have created a safe space for women to come together and have fun. It is my hope that every woman that comes to our studio walks away feeling fabulous and beautiful!
