MEET THE INSTRUCTORS

Education & Credentials: Bachelor of Science in Marketing from LSU, Zumba & Zumba Gold

About Me: I am married to Mike Duplantis, and a mother of two daughters, Madalynn and Morgan. I enjoy spending time with my family watching movies, hanging out by the pool, and having friends over. I have taught at NSU for 3 years and also teach at the Thibodaux Hospital Wellness Center.

Fitness Philosophy: What’s so great about group fitness is that you spend time and make friends with people from all walks of life but you all have something very significant in common: you all are working towards a healthier you.

How do you motivate your participants? I attended my first Zumba class about 6 years ago and was hooked immediately. I love to dance and Zumba gave me that opportunity. In fact, Zumba feels more like a dance party than an “exercise class”. Come join our party; Zumba is truly the “funnest” class on campus.

Bio coming soon!
