Personal / Hobbies

I was a member of the Lady Longhorns Basketball Team from 1987-1989. My expertise is in basketball training; I work with individuals on fundamentals, strength, conditioning, and agility drills that will help them succeed on the court. I have been a personal fitness trainer since 1990. Besides being a trainer, I coach the 7th grade boy’s basketball team at Emery/Weiner. I have been the girl’s Maccabi basketball coach for 16 years, and I am the PE Coach at Beth Yeshurun Day School.  I was a member of the 2005 USA Women's Maccabi Basketball Team that won the gold medal in Israel. If I’m not playing a sport or exercising, I like to spend time with my family and I love cooking.
