What made you start or brought you to where you are today? Tell us your story and what makes you a Buffalo Boss Babe.
I have always wanted to own a business. When I was little I was either playing “store” or “hotel” , and slinging lemonade in my driveway. Pretending and playing a “boss” roll was always way more fun than Barbies to me. I started working at 14 and had jobs in all industries, service, corporate, retail but never really felt like I found my “career”. I got fired from a newspaper job when I told them i was pregnant with my first daughter and it was the best thing that ever happened to me. It forced me to figure it out. I ran a licensed childcare out of my home ( which I hated) but it gave me a taste of being a boss. I was always interested in fitness and found an ad on Craigslist to teach a cardio hip hop class. I got the job and fell in love with helping people love fitness and love to be healthy. It was important to me to show my kids they can be a boss but how important it was to live a happy healthy life. This career really gives me the best of those two awesome worlds. Working with people and impacting their lives is absolute most rewarding job out there ( besides being a mom ) :)
