About Me

Hi, I am Laura. For me, Zumba Fitness is a combination of two lifelong loves: fitness and dance. I began long distance running at the age of ten and completed five marathons by the time I turned sixteen. I competed on the cross country and track teams in high school and chose to to attend the University of Oregon because of its "track town" reputation. Over the years and throughout three pregnancies, I was always out walking, biking and running. I also found myself gravitating to dance classes. I have dabbled in tap, ballet, swing, belly, African and Latin dance. But it wasn't until my first Zumba class three years ago that I began to incorporate dance to help me achieve my physical fitness goals. In November 2010, I celebrated my one year anniversary as a Zumba instructor. I feel blessed to be able to share my love of movement--and my appreciation for its physical and mental benefits--with the wonderful people I have met in all of my classes. Please check out my schedule and drop me an email if you have any questions!!
