I am a communications professional with a passion for physical fitness. I was a ballet dancer since age 7, attending Academia de Baile María Teresa Mendizábal in Puerto Rico for over 15 years. Later, I joined the prestigious Ballets de San Juan, learning from renowned ballerina and choreographer, Maria Carrera. I also danced Flamenco and Jazz, after joining Ms. Mendizabal’s jazz company. I also trained with master jazz choreographer Junito Betancourt, who took me under his wings to improve my dancing skills. After his passing, I continued to dance at Dance Factory, the new gym by fitness guru María Teresa (aka, the Puerto Rican Jane Fonda). In 1984, I got certified as an Aerobics and Acuaerobics Instructor with Christine L. Vega and María Teresa, co-directors of Aerobics Training International, a program endorsed by the Aerobics and Fitness Association of America (AFAA). In the following years, she appeared in María Teresa’s TV aerobics show. I then taught aerobics at Kick & Dance Studio in Río Piedras. Throughout the years, I've stayed active in the fitness world by working out on an on-going basis, competing in local 5K races and doing boot camps. I also practice yoga. Since 2005, I have worked in public health campaigns, supporting the National Diabetes Education Program and developing messages for people at risk of developing diabetes to lead healthy lifestyles. I have developed prevention and control resources (e.g., brochures, flyers, postcards), nutrition and healthy eating webinars, and other educational resources in support of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. In 2013, I became a licensed Zumba® instructor.
