What I enjoy about teaching here:  The diversity and culture all the students bring to Meredith make everyday a learning experience.

Greatest hope for my students:  They know how and practice being healthy and fit for a lifetime.

Learner profile trait that motivates me:  Inquirer - finding different ways to learn and move.

Additional information:   Being physically active is not just what I teach but how I live my life.  With my family I love to run and hike.  Outside of the fitness world I enjoy making pottery, drawings, and being a photographer.
