Fitness Coordinator - Marrero

After working in education for 14 years, I’m excited to join West Jefferson Medical Center/Fitness Center Marrero.  I’ve taught Fitness for Life, Lifetime Wellness, Weight Lifting, Jogging and Functional Fitness at four colleges/universities and two high schools.  I’ve also personal trained at fitness centers in the Atlanta area and Hammond, LA.  While most of my experience is in training athletes, I have also led group classes for the retired population and personal trained all age groups/fitness levels.  I have a Master’s Degree in Health, Physical Education and Recreation from Delta State University and an undergraduate degree from Florida State University in Communication Studies.  My passion is incorporating core, posture and balance into every workout. I also greatly value nutrition. Currently I teach an Abs Class, personal train clients in the pool and sub for spin, aqua, toning and yoga.
