I’m a firm believer in the importance of setting and reaching goals and that all children should enjoy and participate in a healthy life-style which includes life long fitness. I am always looking for ways to connect with children of all ages and to bring enthusiasm to my programs. What better way to spend my life, then making a difference with children through PLAY!
