What's with the photo:
Twice a week, I hurriedly change from my work clothes to my workout gear and head to the student Rec Center. I teach aerobic classes and have been a certified aerobics instructor for 8 years. Currently, I teach Step Interval and Step classes.
The students, faculty and staff who make up this community are truly exceptional people. I enjoy working with and getting to know these folks who are smart, sincere, engaging and witty.
I played DI soccer at JMU for a year as a goalkeeper. I couldn’t handle the injuries so I switched to club soccer, but I wouldn’t take back that amazing year for anything. It was the first time I got to play with truly talented athletes.
Favorite shows: Mad Men, Modern Family, and Big Bang Theory.
Movies I’ve seen more than once (because they are awesome): Love Actually, Dazed and Confused, Sixteen Candles, Amadeus and Almost Famous.
Some concerts I’ve been to: Heart, Depeche Mode, They Might Be Giants, Rush, U2 and Dave Matthews
Why people make fun of me in the office: I’m not on Facebook (it’s evil) and I get teary-eyed at anything that is slightly sappy, touching, sad or uplifting (especially if it involves a dog).
