Tina is a native Evanstonian with a professional background in both education and fitness. She holds a BA in Psychology and Early Childhood Education from Tulane University in New Orleans, LA. Tina has taught in a wide variety of early childhood settings both at home and abroad. After 5 years of classroom teaching, she decided to pursue education in a different way- through personal fitness training.
Tina is a Certified Personal Trainer through the National Academy of Sports Medicine. She owns and operates her own personal training business in addition to teaching at Fusion. Tina is so excited to combine her professional knowledge of education and fitness by teaching P.E. at Fusion!
When not working, Tina can be found reading (she is currently on her 11th book of 2021), exploring the forest preserves and hiking trails of Cook County, or roaming the neighborhood with her husband and overzealous Lab mix, Wrigley.
