What do you do at Pulse?
I teach Zumba Tuesday mornings at 10:15am.
What’s your background in dance, fitness, or both?
As a teenager I danced hip-hop, freestyle and b-boy break dancing. I like incorporating those dance flavas with my Zumba style.
What’s your favorite thing about Pulse?
Pulse PDX is AHHHHMMMMAAAYZING!! The first time I stepped into Pulse PDX (back in the Refuge days) I loved the atmosphere the energy, the people… the VIBE!!
What’s your “guilty pleasure” (as long as it’s PG-rated)?
I LOVE LOVE LOVE Nuts even though I shouldn’t be eating it because i have a high risk of diverticulitis. I can eat a whole container of Mixed Nuts from Costco in 2 hrs!
Can you describe your favorite memory of an experience at Pulse?
The very first time i went on stage at Pulse PDX. I was a guest instructor on Zumba Night with LaTosha “Pardio” Wilson. LaTosha was my VERY first Zumba instructor and it was such an honor to share the stage with one of my mentors.
Lastly, how would you describe PulsePDX to someone that you know would enjoy it here?
Its something that they NEED to come and TRY for themselves. WORDS cannot explain the electricity in the air!!!
