After 24 years of banking, I decided to change career paths. I have recently taken the position at the Lewisburg YMCA as the Membership Director/Fiscal Assistant. This was the next best decision ever! I truly love coming to work every day to work with our awesome staff and see our members every day. We offer so much here. What we do here at the YMCA takes a team and I am blessed to be a part of it.
How did you get started in fitness? What was your first exposure?
I started attending fitness classes at Evan Fitness center. I really liked working out in the group environment. In 2012, they were down a Body Pump instructor, and I took the opportunity to try something new. And I got hooked! It was the best decision ever. And since then, I have become certified in 6 other classes. I love fitness and being a positive role model to others. I have made so many friends along the way and I hope I have helped others fall in love with fitness as well!
Who influenced you along the way? Tell us about your mentors.
