I started hula hooping about 8 years ago for fun to connect with my then pre-teen daughter Hannah. I soon found that this hula hoop was offering me much more than could have been expected. I worked through an addiction, financial hardship, stress, stress, stress, and...I soon found "ME" along with a 100# weight loss.
I spread the "Hoopiness" for about 3 years everywhere and anywhere I could knowing deep down inside that this was to be my new life path. I set my intentions and found out about Hoop Fitness and Hoop Dance. I was fortunate to have Abby Albaum from Hoola Monsters close to my home town and took her Hoola-Fit Certification class in April of 2013.
I'm now have 12+ offerings throughout Nokomis, Venice & Sarasota. In addition I now am so blessed to lead Women's empowerment retreats, Hula Hooping Workshops, & Speaking engagements. I continue to be inspired each and everyday by and through this "Hula Hoop."
The weight loss was really just a side effect of the real work that was happening on the inside and have never felt better in my Mind, Body & Spirit... Come see what all the "Hoopiness" is about.
At their monthly dinner meeting on Tuesday, September 19, 2017, the Business Women of Englewood and Venice (BPWEV) unanimously voted to dedicate their scholarship fund to the memory of Christine Davis. The Adult Learner Scholarships will henceforth be known as the “Christine Davis Memorial Scholarships”. This will honor Christine, who passed away in August 2017, and will make sure that BPWEV will always remember this amazing lady. She was a BPW member for over 50 years, first in New York State and later in Florida. Her endless energies to promote BPW was astounding. She served in every office the organization had to offer, short of State and National President. She served on many committees and especially enjoyed being chair of the scholarship committee till ill health required her to resign from too many obligations. Her beautiful smile, her eagerness to be always willing to help and her efficient handling of any task she elected to do or help with, will not be forgotten by the BPWEV members, but will be missed. The “Christine Davis Memorial Scholarships” will preserve the love and devotion she championed to achieve equity for all women through advocacy, education and information.
