"I was a dancer before I started at Grand Valley. After I was done dancing, I wasn't really sure what I wanted to do to stay active. I found group exercise classes because my mom teaches yoga for Campus Recreation. I began to attend more classes and found that I really liked Zumba. I wanted to become a Zumba instructor to keep dancing as a part of my life. I started out as a Zumba mentee through which I got hired on as a Zumba instructor. This also opened the door to working for other programs at Campus Recreation such as Fitness & Wellness and the Injury Care Clinic.
Working for Campus Recreation has been an amazing experience. It has given me a lot of real world experience in the field of health and wellness, which is what I am interested in pursuing."
