I was born in Nashville, TN and moved to Albuquerque, NM when I was 8. My family still resides there but for whatever reason I knew that staying there wasn't for me, so I landed in San Diego in 1994 where I later met my best friend and soul mate, Neil. This April we will be celebrating our 18th anniversary. Then there's our greatest achievements, Ethan Justus and Monty Kenneth. I started Stroller Striding when Ethan was about 8 months old. Both of us quickly fell in love with the program and about 6 months later I found myself in instructor training...best decision ever made! Fast forward to now, Ethan is now in Elementary school and his little brother Monty (20 months) is now enjoying the benefits of strides. I can't imagine the last 5 years of my life without this amazing program and LOVE that I get to help other mom's find their strength in motherhood while showing their kiddos that fitness is FUN!
