I have been an AFAA Certified Group Fitness Instructor since 1995 teaching various classes. Upon moving to Bethlehem in 2002 I became certified/licensed to teach Zumba/Zumba Gold, Aquatics, Group Cycling and various Silver Sneakers Classes.
I am originally from Jamaica, Queens and Staten Island, NY. We moved to Bethlehem after my husband of 36 years retired from The New York City Police Dept. Mounted Unit. Joe is currently a Police Officer at Moravian College. We have two grown sons, Joseph and Anthony. Our daughter, Allison passed away in June, 2012. Since then we have established The Allison Nicole Perno Scholarship Fund. Her scholarship benefits the students in the Bethlehem Area School District as well as our community.
