What made you start or brought you to where you are today ? Tell us your story. What makes you a Buffalo Boss Babe?
Living in beautiful Buffalo NY with all the amazing local food from all over the world available at anytime of day is how I got started lol. In college I struggled with weight loss and having very unhealthy habits, my determination to make a change for myself birthed La'Movement. After reconnecting with one of my 1st loves, DANCE I was able to be successful in my weight loss efforts. The community wanted to know my "secret " to weight loss. We started teaching a zumba class, then Abs, then developed La'X a heels class and our own LMF Dance fit. The mission to get the community active and live a healthier lifestyle took a life of it's own. Working in over 25 schools to fight childhood obesity and 1000s of women throughout WNY.
What does being a Buffalo Boss Babe mean to you?
It's a La'Mazing feeling to be considered a Buffalo Boss Babe. I love this community and we've gotten so much support in WNY. To be viewed as successful and being able to have an opportunity to inspire the next generation in a positive way means everything.
