Carey grew up in New Hampshire and enjoyed field hockey and softball in school. She attended Missouri State University and earned a bachelor’s degree in political science, and a masters in history. Her most recent move brought her to Columbia where she is working toward a PhD. at Mizzou. As an adult Carey attended a variety of group fitness classes including Tae Bo and Yoga. However, once she joined a Zumba class in 2010 she found her calling.

The supportive Zumba community motivated Carey to obtain her Zumba certification. She has been teaching for several years and is proud to be part of the ZIN community. Carey loves connecting with others and leading them toward a healthier life through music and dance, as she continues her own journey. She plans to become certified in other Zumba programs in the future. We are happy to have this saucy young lady on our fitness team.
