Tell us about yourself. I am from all over the place as I moved around a ton growing up! Born in Delaware, moved to Michigan when I was 5, then to Pennsylvania when I was 11, spent a year there. You would think that would be enough moving around as a child but no, I then moved to SWITZERLAND for 4 years and finally we moved back to PA when I was in high school. I finished up high school and went to Penn State for college, I graduated with a BS in psychology in 2002. I moved to NJ in 2005 and have been in Hoboken since 2007. I have worked for Pharmaceutical companies since I graduated, but at the moment I am working for a contract research organization (CRO) doing study start up for Pharmaceutical companies.
How did you find WiO and what motivates you to get to the studio? I found WiO through fellow WIOer, Alexis Walling. The first class I took was Zumba Love with Kelly and I was hooked! I feel better when I exercise, I like the way it makes me look and feel. Plus, I like the group classes and getting to talk and connect to the other WiOers. Since, I work from home 3 days a week its nice to get out of the house at the end of the day!
There are a ton of little boutique shops in Hoboken, what are your favorite ones to treat yourself to a new outfit? To be honest, I don’t do a lot of shopping in Hoboken. That’s kind of my mom and I’s “thing”. I do most of my shopping with her when I go back for visits. And since I am home most of the time, I more or less live in yoga pants!!
