I was born in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania but have lived in London since 1982. I started Nordic Walking as a substitute for running in April 2011 and fell in love with it. I could immediately see that Nordic Walking offers huge benefits for people who are less fit due to injury, illness, lack of exercise or lack of confidence, and decided to become an instructor.
I wanted further training and completed the next level of instructing that also enables me to work with people who are referred by their doctors for a variety of problems including high blood pressure, back pain, diabetes and joint replacement. I also teach workout classes for those who want a more challenging class.
