Deanna was raised in Tampa and came to Gainesville to attend the University of Florida. She has been a resident here since 2000. Deanna and her husband, Carl, have three daughters – Natalie, Julie, and Mollie. She is also an Assistant Professor in the Math Department at Santa Fe College.
After the birth of her second child, Deanna decided to explore the different fitness options available so she could keep up with her kids. After giving several a try, she fell in love with AUXO Fitness after just the first visit. The first class was the hardest and required tons of shake outs! She stuck with it not just for the amazing workouts, but also for the community and warmth. She eventually decided to pursue her barre teaching certificate and has been teaching barre classes since 2017.
Deanna enjoys spending time with her family – bike riding on trails around town, hopping in a pool, or building pillow cushion forts on rainy days. She likes to read and travel, and is hopeful to take on some bigger travel adventures as her girls grow. She can’t wait for you to join her at AUXO as you build strength and confidence.
