Jennifer graduated with a BA from Seattle University in Humanities, and was an International Model for many years.

She is licensed for Zumba Fitness, Zumba Toning, Aqua Zumba, Zumba Gold, Zumba Gold-Toning, Zumba Kids, Zumba Kids Jr., and STRONG by Zumba. Her energetic, fun-loving, and engaging personality in combination with her sassy, easy to follow routines, and often night club atmosphere make her classes a party that you won't want to miss! Jennifer loves every moment of teaching her classes, and Zumba Fitness is such a blessing in her life. In the past she always had a drive for staying fit, but only loved the feeling of working out when the workout was over. Zumba allowed her to feel the energy running through her and being in shape is just a welcomed bonus! It changed her outlook on fitness substantially, into a healthier attitude that being and getting fit should be fun! Not only does Jennifer fulfill her passion for dance, but sharing it with everyone allows her to inspire others and provide a safe environment to have fun working out, and this has trickled into everything else she teaches.
