In July of 1991 at an IDEA International Fitness Confernce, I saw a sign that read, “Body, Mind, Spirit Workout.” I had not seen the word ‘spirit’ used in any other courses offered. Immediately, my curiosity drew me to take the workshop. It was a Nia workshop, and I clearly recall watching Debbie and Carlos enter the room. Every cell of my being recognized their radiance. They took the stage and did something unheard of at that time in the fitness industry – they invited us to take off our shoes. Those first barefoot seconds of conscious movement had my wounded knees saying, “Ahhhhhhh” as they experienced healing through movement.


Words cannot express the infinite gifts my heart receives from the privilege of sharing the Nia Belts. I travel internationally teaching Nia, and I am passionately in love with what I am privileged to share. I am now a 2nd degree Black Belt and eagerly await the 3rd degree Black Belt.


I've taught fitness classes since 1981.  I also share Yoga and Melt Hand & Foot.  My home studio, Heartdance, was opened in 2008 in Lansing, MI.
