Jackie has her Bachelors Degree in Kinesiology from Penn State, her Doctorate of Physical Therapy from Temple University, and is a Certified Group Fitness Instructor through the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM).
She fell in love with teaching fitness at Penn State and has been striving to make others love fitness as much as she does for the past 9 years. When she’s not sweating or doing burpees, she is a full-time physical therapist at Temple University Hospital, helping people in the very beginnings of mobility. And when she’s not at work, you can find her running, snowboarding, playing with her nephew Levi, cheering for the Eagles, or traveling!
You can bet her competitive and energetic personality will bring some high intensity pushes in each of her classes, but don’t worry, there are always modifications if needed! She is short, but fierce, and ready to push you to the next level to get the fitness and lifestyle change results you want.
Her motto: Move a little every day! She believes any form of physical activity each day is the key to a happy and healthy life!
