While doing immunogenetics research in the adjacent building, I was a chorus girl in Pal Joey. (That's me in the foreground.)

About Me
All my life I've loved dancing. In college, while studying biology, I used to sneak out of the lab through an underground tunnel to the theater for rehearsals. Now I work as a freelance science writer and children's author. My job gives me a schedule flexible enough to allow me to attend--and teach--as many Zumba classes as I can. 

There are so many health benefits to dancing, especially dancing together with others. But the best thing about Zumba for me is this: Zumba makes me happy!
