Greetings From Marquita

I was born and raised in Flint, Michigan and fitness changed my life! Never physically active as a child or a young adult (I only ran if my life was in danger), I reached a point where I had to make a change.  I was tired of being overweight and wanted to reduce my risk of developing diabetes, heart disease, and cancer; all of which have claimed the lives of many family members and friends.

I began weight training in October 2008, which first developed my love for health and fitness. One day, I decided to switch things up and give a Zumba class a try. Not only has it aided in my fitness endeavors, it has helped me to gain more endurance, balance, and confidence. I am addicted to Zumba, which is why I am affectionately known as "The Zumba Diva."

My fitness career began in 2011 by teaching group fitness classes. Six years later, I decided to take my passion for helping people fall in love with fitness to a new level by founding Harambee Wellness™. I cultivate fun fitness experiences that help you T.H.R.I.V.E.....Transform Health by Renewing and Increasing the Vitality of Every BODY!  I am AFAA & ACE Certified; Licensed to Teach Zumba®, Zumba® Gold, Zumba® Sentao, and STRONG Nation™; and CPR/AED Certified by the American Red Cross.  You can find me throughout the Greater Flint Area and virtually across the globe with the mission of helping people thrive everyday. #LetsThriveTogether
