Fabulous Fellow Instructors
I am happily Married to Jamie Mardock with 4 children (2 boys & 2 girls) and have lived in wonderful City of Nyssa for 10+ years. I adore Children, Music & Dancing and love even more to share my passion with others. I grew up along the Northern Oregon Coast and attended Dance Classes & Pageants as a Child. My oldest Boys proudly attend Nyssa Elementary. I am very proud to be part of the Community of Nyssa and love to watch it grow. I just recently became a Licensed Zumba, Zumba Gold & Zumba Kids Instructor. I am very excited to get the Gold going in Nyssa!!!
I grew up in Dunedin, Florida where I began gymnastics at 6 years old. I loved floor so much that I actually specialized on floor for 8 years. I found cheerleading when I was 12 and cheered for a small football city league. A competitive cheer coach asked me if I would come try out for her county all-star team where they only cheer at competitions, not sporting events. I made her team and cheered with Pinellas County Allstars for 6 years. After high school, I got married to my husband Jeremy Peterson, and moved to Nyssa and added three beautiful children to our family. I now get the chance to share my love of Fitness at Nyssa Artistic Dance Academy. I am excited to say that I am a Licensed Zumba, Zumba Sentao and Zumba Kids Instructor.
