What do you do at Pulse?

I spark people! I’m a jack of all trades but, currently I will be focusing on Pound and Zumba Toning Core and Glutes

What’s your background in dance, fitness, or both?

I always dreamed to be a dancer but I was too shy for it! Later in life, Zumba appeared in my life and I was selected to be a choreographer for them as well as an international presenter. I’m a Personal Trainer as well as certified in multiple formats.

What’s your favorite thing about Pulse?

The cool environment and the unique formats!

Too many songs! As long it has a positive and high energy vibe, I’m down!

What’s your “guilty pleasure” (as long as it’s PG-rated)?

I’m a tea junkie and a chocolate and croissants fanatic!

Can you describe your favorite memory of an experience at Pulse?

The smile that people give you back when they are in their “zone”

Lastly, how would you describe PulsePDX to someone that you know would enjoy it here?
