All the amazing instructors I’ve been following since my first class at JDR in October 2012! What an inspiring group of ladies! Sara Bremer is the bee’s knees.

Registered Nurse at Carilion Clinic in the Operating Room. I truly love my “real” job! I’m also a mom to 2 kids and a wife!

Hip Hop, Latin Pop & Belly/Bhangra
What are your favorite songs to twerk to in class?
Any hip hop song!
What other talents/hobbies do you have?
We enjoy baseball games with the family, GO CUBBIES!! Our book club consistently meets once a month and we actually read the book not just drink wine! My hubby and I love live music, we’ve seen Dave Matthews Band 16 years in a row and enjoy many other bands/music as well. We are obsessed with our pup, Ellie, we seriously love on her all the time.
