I work at the Laurel Campus of Somerset Community College during the day and in the evenings I am an aerobics and yoga instructor.  I began the doctoral program for Educational Leadership at EKU this fall.  Prayers appreciated!
My certifications and licenses include AFAA Group Fitness, Turbo Kick, PiYo, Hip Hop Hustle, Zumba, Aqua Zumba, Zumbatomic, Zumba Gold, Zumba Toning, resistance training, indoor cycling, yoga, and Pilates.  I attended an ACSM Personal Trainer workshop last semester in Nashville and was blown away by all the info!  There is always something new to learn!
I am a single mother of 3 wonderful teenagers who are very active in basketball, softball, volleyball, clogging, JROTC, and Boy Scouts.  I understand how difficult it can be to manage responsibilities and still get the kids where they need to be!  I am also very grateful to the many parents of my children’s friends who are always willing to offer rides and a place to stay when I am at work or in class.  It really does take a village to raise children!

Research: I am considering doing my dissertation on job placement and availability in Eastern Kentucky.
Interests – professional: I would like to open a job placement center, and start a mentoring program for staff at SCC.  I would also like to become a certified instructor for GE 140.
Interests – personal: I enjoy teaching fitness classes and helping others see their beauty and uniqueness, specifically through dance fitness.
