New York: Central Park
KIDS: Currently pregnant with my first child - due end of February 2018 (on my birthday!). Very excited to become a mom and start this new chapter in my life.
PASSION: Teaching- I love working with other people and making them smile and feel good about themselves. I also love working with children and am extremely interested in child-development psychology.
JOB: I got my BA in Dance Education in Rotterdam, NL, and taught dance for many years in The Netherlands and Egypt. I currently work as a nanny (same family for 8 years) and Zumba Instructor at several YMCAs.
FAVORITE SPORT: Though I've never played it, I love watching tennis. I hope to learn to play soon so my husband and I can play together.
SPORT GOALS: At the moment, the most important thing for me is to finish my pregnancy feeling strong and healthy (I've been in the Mom in Balance Pregnancy workout since I was 15 weeks pregnant) and then having a good recovery in Back in Shape classes.
GUILTY PLEASURE: Zoute drop (Dutch salty licorice) and other Dutch treats - luckily I only indulge in them when I go to visit family and friends there...
