I BEGAN AS A FITNESS INSTRUCTOR IN MY HOME CITY OF CALI, COLOMBIA
One day I got to my class, and I realized I’d left my regular aerobics music at home. I looked in my bag, took out some salsa and merengue tapes, popped them into the sound system, and taught the first-ever Zumba® class. After a career as a trainer and choreographer in Colombia, I decided to make the big move to the United States.
With only with my moves and my passion, I sold all my belongings and moved to Miami in search of the American Dream. I didn't speak a word of English. I’m here to better myself and bring the Zumba love to the entire planet. I’ve made a challenging position for myself as an instructor in a great work environment surrounded by friends who have become like family to me!
