Zumba has been my life blood over the past decade and to me it means community. It has provided me a space to not just dance and move my body, but to get to know and connect with some incredible human beings. I founded Body Bonita with the hope of providing space for others to feel connected and energized. I believe that through community and movement everyone can discover and share their inner bonita (beauty).
I LOVE group exercise, and, most specifically, teaching Zumba® Fitness classes. I am the happiest I ever am when instructing a class.
I am fluent in Spanish.
My favorite food is peanut butter.
My family is my life.
