What does 'Make Life Richer' mean to you?

Do what you love. Love what you do. Support and encourage others. Give a hug to a person who needs it. Smile until your face hurts. Laugh every chance you get. Love yourself. Enjoying your life. Celebrate the small victories. Make new friendships. Stop caring so much about what others think about you. Let the little things go. Dance even if there's no music. Inspire others. Encourage others. Realise it's not how much we have, it's how much we enjoy that makes life richer!

How do you stretch yourself?

I love, love, LOVE to learn new things. There is no way for one person to know everything, if you think you do you are sailing on a sinking ship. I constantly want to learn new things. I want to drive to Cork so I can host a class and spread the POUND love. I want to stay up until midnight on a Sunday learning new routines. I want to fly to the UK to take that extra training to build on what I previously learned. I want to be a student and experience different styles of teaching. I want to try something new and make mistakes because that's how we learn. I want to grow and I want to get better. I want to make the experience for my students the best I possibly can.

What is your 'go to' coffee?

DECAF! My energy levels are pretty high as is. I'm pretty sure I was a Duracell Bunny in a past life. My students have specifically asked for me not to have coffee before I teach otherwise I'm bouncing off the walls (more than normal)!
