She is licensed for Zumba® Fitness, Zumba® Toning, Aqua Zumba®, Zumba Gold®, Zumba® Gold-Toning, and Zumbatomic®. Her energetic, fun-loving, and engaging personality in combination with her sassy, easy to follow routines, and often night club atmosphere make her classes a party that you won’t want to miss! Jennifer loves every moment of teaching her classes, and Zumba® Fitness is such a blessing in her life. In the past she always had a drive for staying fit, but only loved the feeling of working out when the workout was over. Now with Zumba® Fitness, she feels the incredible energy running through her and being in shape is just a welcomed bonus! Zumba® changed her outlook on fitness substantially, into a healthier attitude that being and getting fit should be fun! Not only does Jennifer fulfill her passion for dance, but sharing it with everyone allows her to inspire others and provide a safe environment where they can party the entire time! Jennifer held the opening party for the 2012 Stanford Healthy Living Retreat for Women in Lake Tahoe. Jennifer teaches regularly at Roco Dance in Fairfax and Mill Valley, CA.
