Employee Recognition May: Monica

April 24, 2016

MORE ABOUT MONICA:
HOMETOWN: Ridgewood, NJ
EDUCATION: B.A. Cornell University, M.Ed.
Vanderbilt University
SIBLINGS: one brother, Bill
STARTED AT ISLAND: 2012 as a member /
participant, 2015 as an instructor
HOBBIES: The gym is my favorite hobby
FAVORITE EXERCISES: It’s hard to pick just
one. Skaters, burpees, push-ups, running,
weight-lifting, down dog…I like them all!
FAVORITE FOOD: It’s hard to pick one of
these too. It’s a good thing I love exercise!
FAVORITE MOVIE: I Love Lucy
FAVORITE THING ABOUT ISLAND: The people! I’m inspired every time I come into Island. The people are kind, hard-working, and a lot of fun.

FAVORITE VACATION SPOT: I’ll have to let you know when my kids are older and my bank account is bigger.

FAVORITE SPOT IN ITHACA: My home. I love spending time with my family and our wonderful neighbors.

SOMETHING YOU MAY NOT KNOW ABOUT ME: I’m incredibly grateful for the group fitness classes at Island and our talented instructors. When I first joined Island I was unhealthy, out-of-shape, and 40+ pounds heavier. I had been a captain of the cross-country team in high school but could barely run at that point. I fell back in love with exercise in the group fitness room of Island. The classes are hard work but so much fun. The instructors taught me to appreciate what I could do, and to keep reaching for what I wanted to do next.

HIDDEN TALENT: I homeschool my three sons (ages 8, 6, and 4), so perhaps my talent is managing chaos.

WHEN I’M NOT AT ISLAND I’M: With my husband and our boys.
