I am the founder of Wholly Fit!.

I was born and raised in France. You will fast notice my accent LOL. I have 2 beautiful children Ellie 12 and Matthieu 7 years old. I studied advertising in college and I had an advertising company in Paris before coming to the US. Since 2005, I own a landscaping and lawn care company with my husband Christopher, called Neighborhood Lawn Care

After struggling with my "baby" weight and back problems for many years, I finally stepped in a Zumba® class in 2012. In couple months of clean eating and exercising, I lost over 40 lbs. I was so in love with Zumba® that I decided to become an instructor. Then opening my own studio just made sense. JT and I wanted a place where everyone could come exercise and have fun without the "gym" feel. You know that feeling we all had walking in a big gym. That uncomfortable feeling that people are looking and judging you? Well, we wanted a studio that you would walk into and feel home, among friends. I believe we have created that at Wholly Fit! No one has to ever feel bad or embarrassed while dancing or exercising. It's about having fun. If you do not like your workout, you will not stick to it! We wanted to make sure everybody and every bodies are respected and love. No matter your size, skin color, religion or what not. Just be you and shake it! Our moto was that we were a "Judgement Free Zone" studio.

Even now that Wholly Fit! closed its doors November 2017, I still teach Zumba® classes in Lilburn and I still perpetuate the "Judgement Free Zone" philosophy . I am blessed to dance every week with amazing ladies (and sometimes gentlemen). 

I am certified in Zumba® Basic 1 and 2, Zumba® Gold, Zumba® Toning, Zumba® Gold Toning, Zumba® Glutes, Zumba® Kids and Kids Jr., Zumba® in the Circuit, FXP™ Hula Hoop and also CPR.
