Hometown: Saline, MI

A bit about me:

I recently graduated from Michigan State University with a Bachelor of Arts in Communication. Yes I did suffer through the green and white to receive my diploma. (I bleed maize and blue)

I am definitely a morning person and enjoy being outdoors.

I love running.

I am obsessed with my golden retriever named Cody.

Giraffes are my favorite animal.

I can never get enough sunshine.

My favorite color is purple.

Favorite Movie:

I can’t choose sooo Coach Carter and Friday Night Lights

Favorite Sports Team:

Michigan Football. Hail Harbaugh!

Favorite Cheat Meal:

Breyers Mint Chocolate Chip ice cream 🙂 anything chocolate really

Biggest Fear:

Snakes. The way they slither is just terrifying to me

Hidden Talent:

I am actually a beast at Zumba, Dance Central and the Michael Jackson Xbox Kinect games.

Bucket List:

Visit every Zoo in the country, go to the hotel in Africa where giraffes come to your bedroom window and wake up in the morning and explore Italy, Greece and Spain.

When I’m not at AFS:

I am usually hanging out with my golden retriever, Cody, at the Big House or at a giraffe exhibit.

Why I chose to work at AFS:

 I grew up around fitness. My family has always been active.  Whether it was instructing fitness classes, playing sports, running a 10K, canoeing we enjoyed each activity.  When I had the opportunity to become apart of not only a gym but a fitness community there was no way I could pass it up. Getting to know the clients here is the best part! I love seeing everyone motivating each other and changing their lifestyles for the better day by day.
