I was named the 2023 Volunteer Coach/Instructor of the year from the City of Des Moines Park & Recreation Department for the summer series water aerobics I held this past summer🥳👏🏾🎈🙌🏾💪🏽🥰❤️

I didn’t create this series to win an award but I am so honored and grateful for the recognition! 🫶🏾🥇

I strive to do my best to improve health in my community and representation is critical and water aerobics is such a great low impact activity for all fitness levels to enjoy❤️🥰

I haven’t seen this offered in my community so I created it 💯

If you would like to join me at the awards ceremony Tuesday January 23rd at 5pm, please let me know asap!

This summer will be even better! I will have evening and Saturday options 👏🏾💃🏽🥳

Grateful to my board for all their support and my sponsors, Delta Dental and United Way of Central Iowa. 🥰

Most importantly all of you that stepped out of your comfort zones and tried my water aerobics class,
THANK YOU 😘🥰❤️man did we have fun and got some intentional movement in💪🏽☀️

I’m out here trusting GOD with my dreams 🌹
