I drive a stick shift!
My favorite beer is either White Rascal or Slumbrew Happy Sol. Favorite drink, hands down, is the Valentino at The Beehive--a blood orange vodka cocktail in a frosted martini glass = perfection.
The University of Michigan football team. Go Blue!

My own smoothie creation that I like to call "The Lendizzle" (Yes, it's true. I name my own smoothies). 1 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk, 1 small banana, 1/2 cup blueberries, 1 Tbsp peanut butter, and 1 scoop whey protein. BOOM.
I randomly went skydiving once in Zephyrhills, Florida by myself...I lost a bet, whoops!
A refreshing vodka soda with lime and muddled blackberries, a hoppy Imperial IPA, or a crisp New Zealand sauvignon blanc ;)
Caesar Milan's How to Raise The Perfect Dog My boyfriend Sean and I will have a new addition to the family this year - a yellow lab named Brett! In preparation for the little guy I'm doing as much research as possible. Expect to see a cute new face around the studio. Is anyone else thinking the HB needs a mascot?
I enjoy a huge variety of music! Justin Timberlake and Beyonce in their entirety as well as the sounds from John Mayer, Disclosure, Broods, and MS MR... I am constantly browsing new voices, beats, and instruments to dance to and zone in to.
A seasonal beer in a chilled pint glass! And I cant go anywhere without my green water bottle.
Any craft store and Trader Joe's.
I always hold on to this quote I heard once in a yoga class... "Its not where you're going, its how you're going".
Boston Bruins! I even have a cat named Bergeron.
Whiskey and ginger.
I can do a rubix cube in under a minute.
Hummus (lots of it), Kale, Eggs, Carrots, Apples, and Two-buck Chuck.
On the bike, anything remixed by The Chainsmokers. Off the bike, Ellie Goulding and Beyonce.
I'm fluent in "Donald Duck".
Local 149 in Southie. Their breakfast pizza's to die for.
Fruits and veggies, yogurt, eggs, cheese, almond milk, and leftovers from about a week ago.
I am a certified scuba diver!
Anything with peanut butter. Most of the time just out of the jar.
Off the bike, I'm a country girl, anything from Carrie Underwood to Eric Church, on the bike, cant beat artists like, Pitbull, Krewella and Kanye, just to name a few.
Non-alcoholic: lavender kombucha; alcoholic: dirty martini with blue cheese stuffed olives!
My yoga mat, numerous umbrellas, and embarrassingly, my art history textbooks from college – my mom recently forced me to take them off her hands and apparently I’d rather spend more on gas to lug those things around the greater Boston area than carry them up my 3 flights of steep stairs.
Seeing people crush goals in any area of their lives!
The Cucumber Cooler at Legal Test Kitchen.
A Weeping Willow. I love their shape, they're so massive and majestic, all the other trees definitely respect them.
Bob Marley. Instead of singing us lullabies when we were babies, my dad sang us some Bob.
Lots of fruits and veggies, Yogurts, left-over Thai food, 3 different kinds of pickles and a lot of cheese. I love cheese.
Morning. I never feel more prepared to tackle my day than when I wake up to run or teach an early bird spin class. And if I'm lucky, I get to catch the sunrise.
I do love running, but hot yoga has swiftly become a favorite. I'm a group fitness junkie, and hot yoga makes me sweat just as much as spin! Plus, nothing feels better than stretching it out after spin.
"When we are no longer able to change a situation, we are challenged to change ourselves."
Early morning hands down. I'm talking like 5am. I love being the first one awake in the morning. I feel like I am at my best before noon but don't expect me to be awake past 9pm on a weeknight!
Helping local animal shelters has always been very important to me. I grew up with rescue dogs and helped my family foster a few until they were ready to be adopted. I always try to find a way to support local animal welfare organizations and even adopted my pup from the MSPCA.
Lots of almond milk, cheese, veggies, yogurt, and champagne that has been sitting in there for over 2 years.
I am a Machine, by David Guetta hands down. This song could pull me up a mountain all day. I have actually listened to it for 30 minuets in a row climbing on my own before. It is that good.
The energy. It can be 6am or 6pm doesn’t matter, the energy that comes from a class working together is invigorating, it is that best perk of the job.
I bounce around a lot during the day, so anything that is portable. I usually have a few clementines stashed in my bad. They are quick, delicious and easy to carry.
