Bri (she/her) is a Georgia peach that has been Raleigh-living since 2017. She earned both her B.S., Ed. in Health and Physical Education and M.Ed. in College Student Affairs Administration from the University of Georgia (Go Dawgs!). Bri's various roles as an educator have always occurred at the intersection of fitness; she has taught sports, movement, and life skills in a range of capacities including teaching adaptive physical education, coaching high school basketball, and providing academic support for college student-athletes.
Bri considers joyful movement to be a sacred and intentional space for her to practice self-confidence, challenge the limiting beliefs she has about herself, and manage the physical and mental stressors of having an autoimmune disease. She especially enjoys walking, spin, strength training, and interval training. Bri became a group fitness instructor because she believes in the power of community, especially for women of color and specifically for Black women. She hopes to curate fun and engaging classes that allow folks to feel both empowered to take up space and courageous to try new things. Bri doesn't take herself too seriously so you can expect classes full of corny jokes and plenty of Beyonce' references!
When she's not teaching, Bri is working as a non-profit program manager, updating her playlists, brunching her way through Raleigh, browsing museums, or hiking new trails!
