Julie worked as a Police Officer for the last 10 and half years and prior to that 13-years as a Paramedic. Julie’s real passion has been Latin Dance and fitness since she was a child and has now made that a reality.

Julie began Zumba classes in October of 2006 and since then has been so hooked that she decided to get certified as a Zumba Instructor. Julie went to a workshop in Ohio where she trained with the Zumba Originator, Beto Perez. She also was featured on the Zumba Infomercial. Just after getting certified she started the Latin program at LA Fitness in Hanover Park and taught at Ballys Health Club West Schaumburg. She has had quite the following with her classes and decided to open up her own business, Studio Energia, formerly known as Latin Flair Fitness.

Studio Energia is known for their Zumba Classes because of the energy and club like atmosphere they bring however they have many other class formats to offer. In fact having opened Studio Energia has brought Julie so many opportunities and business expansion that Julie retired from the police department last year in June.
