Ivette's story

I am a passionate individual that loves helping people and aims to improve lives by education and motivation. Health and wellness is my life! Growing up I have always been interested in fitness, so it was inevitable that I would become a Physical Educator and a Health Counselor. I grew up in Brooklyn, New York and I have always dreamed of becoming a teacher, and being my own boss. As a younger sibling, I loved selling things and talking to people, and I can remember a time that I decorated my clothes (jeans/tee shirt) and decided to sell them after only wearing them once. It was a one of a kind unique outfit that I received several compliments from! Currently, I possess eleven years of teaching experience and over seventeen years in the Health and Wellness field as a master trainer and a group fitness instructor. My goal is to create comprehensive programs that are specific to each individual and inspire people to live healthy lives. I also am an advocate for youth development and obesity prevention. I lead by example and am highly qualified in the areas of fitness, health, and prevention. I am pursuing an E.d.D in K-12 School Administration at Seton Hall University. I possess a New Jersey Supervisor certification, New York City K-12 Physical Education teacher certification, a Masters Degree in Physical Education and Sports Pedagogy and a Bachelors degree in Education with a minor in Psychology.
