I grew up in Cincinnati, OH and received my BS and MS degree from Ohio University, Athens OH. I've worked as a personal trainer, taught fitness classes, and performed stress testing. I currently work in cardiac rehab since 1999. I enjoy spending time with my family (my husband and 2 daughters), reading mysteries, reading mystical novels, cooking, dancing, hiking, boating, running, Stand-up Paddle boarding, biking, Big 10 football (Go BUCKS!), ACC basketball (Go Duke!) My professional interest are motivational interviewing, exercise prescription for people of all abilities and levels of function, and working with people to help them reach their health and fitnes goals.
