Colette is grateful to be spending her days with her son, Lucien, born in April 2014. And she is thrilled to be joining the amazing team of instructors here at Fit4Mom Cary/Durham! Colette grew up in Chapel Hill, NC (go Heels!) and graduated from UNC-Chapel Hill in 2009 with a degree in Elementary Education. She taught fourth grade for four years at Mills Park Elementary in Cary before Lucien was born. She is an avid runner and has completed four half marathons as well as numerous shorter races. As a child Colette was obsessed with horses and was active in Pony Club. Through high school, she taught younger children to ride. In recent years she has also coached summer swim teams and tutored many children. Two of her other passions are literacy and reading. In September 2014, when Lucien was 5 months old, Colette joined Stroller Strides and instantly loved the workouts and community of welcoming mamas. She thanks Stroller Strides for getting her back into pre-pregnancy shape and introducing her to many new friends for both herself and Lucien! Colette completed her Stroller Strides instructor certification in January 2015 and can't wait to share her passion for fitness and wellbeing with other moms and their babies.
