Describe your business. Did you find it, or did it find you?
fitRIDE Studio is an indoor full-body workout cycle studio. As a former triathlete who suffered a traumatic amputation, I tell friends that the bike became my calling in a quest to keep working out and pushing limits.
What was the first job you ever had, and what did you learn from the experience?
The very first job I held as a teenager was a summer camp counselor. It taught me that attitude is everything!
What life accomplishments are you most proud of?
I am most proud of my family. My husband and three sons are my love, light and motivation.
Who is your role model in business or in life, and why?
I am active in every aspect of my business. You’ll find me at the front desk, teaching classes, mopping floors and more. My goal is to be connected and stay connected.
Where do you go when the going gets tough?
I love to hit the golf range.
What’s your hidden talent?
I am fluent in Spanish.
What’s your biggest job perk?
My biggest job perk is helping people achieve their goals. I lost over 65 pounds, so I know the struggle firsthand.
What’s your favorite place to eat out locally?
Jack’s Urban Eats.
What’s your favorite local business other than your own?
I love The BodyBar(re) - El Dorado Hills. It’s the perfect complementary workout to cycling.
What is your opinion of Style Magazine?
I look forward to each and every copy of Style. It keeps me up-to-date on local events and in touch with the community.
And finally, customer service is…?
