As a fitness enthusiast, she held numerous championship titles in the martial arts and has trained individuals of all ages and abilities, from aspiring athletes to NFL and PGA Tour professionals. Most recently she was a fitness coach and kickboxing instructor at So Cal Boot Camp but has since devoted all of her spare time promoting awareness on childhood obesity, type 2 diabetes and the importance of healthy lifestyle choices via sound nutrition, exercise and substance abuse prevention. Through the foundation’s annual HIGH 5IVE 4FITNESS event, she helps unite the exercise community into an integrated “fitfam”, where local gyms participate and compete against each other, but with the common cause of raising the funds that keep the TNPF programs free to the communities of south Orange County and beyond.
She currently serves the City of San Clemente on the Human Affairs Committee and her favorite activities include pretty much anything outdoors, especially if it’s on the beach or tennis courts! She and her husband, Don, have two grown children who grew up in CUSD and currently live and attend college in the Pacific Northwest. The only remaining child at home is a furry, four-legged family member named Yuki.
