Hi, I am Karen and I am a Zumba and Fitness fanatic!
I absolutely love teaching Zumba. It has truly changed my life. I grew up taking classes in my grandmother’s dance studio and I became a dance teacher at the young age of 12. I have been dancing and teaching ever since. I was in a professional dance company for many years where I specialized in jazz and tap dancing. I graduated from the University of Maryland with B.S. degrees in Physical Education and Dance and then later in Computer Science. During college, I was fortunate to be a member of the cheerleading squad at the University of Maryland. After college I got certified as a Personal Trainer and continued teaching group fitness and children’s dance classes. As soon as I attended my first Zumba class, I was immediately in love with the program. It was so much fun and I loved learning all of the Latin rhythms and dances. It wasn’t long before I got certified in Zumba and started teaching. I suddenly realized how much I missed dancing and how happy it made me. I am so thrilled to have my own Brickhouse Cardio Club so that I can keep dancing and share my passion for Zumba and Fitness with my students.
I live in Ellicott City where my husband and I raised four wonderful children. I am a Software Engineer by day and a Fitness Instructor by night. I look forward to going to Brickhouse every day. It is a place for friendship, fun, and fitness.
