Meet the Team
Founder and CEO
She-Rae is the Founder and CEO of SpringSpot. She was previously an NCAA Division I gymnast, but after she got married and had kids while working full time, her physical and mental wellbeing took a back seat. Between work, driving kids to school, their activities, running the household and sleeping, it was hard to find time for exercise! She knew there had to be a better way and SpringSpot was born. The mission became to empower families everywhere to take control of their health and wellbeing and not force parents to choose between their own wellbeing or their kids.
Prior to SpringSpot, She-Rae was a technology executive at Apple and Amazon leading teams to pioneer and launch new digital media, mobile and health products to consumers. She-Rae received her BS in Electrical Engineering at Stanford and her MBA at Harvard Business School. She's also a yoga teacher (RYT-200, trained at CorePower), certified personal trainer (ACSM-CPT), and nutrition coach (PN1). She lives in the Bay Area with her husband and three young kids, two boys and a baby girl. In her free time she enjoys playing tennis, swimming, practicing yoga and being active outdoors with her family and friends.
What do you love about SpringSpot? I love that SpringSpot has empowered me to get into the best shape of my adult life and role model a healthy lifestyle for my kids and husband. It's very fulfilling to see the positive impact we're making on the wellbeing of the kids and families we serve, and I'm thrilled that we're setting these kids up for a lifetime of healthy habits. Also, with great classes like Cardio+Core, being physically and mentally well has never been this fun as a family!
What is your favorite physical activity? I love yoga, running and dancing. If I hear a great rhythm or beat, my hips and feet just start moving!

What do you love about SpringSpot? What I love about SpringSpot is experiencing, first-hand, behind-the-scenes how much this team cares for the families, adults and kids we serve. Every detail from concept, production to reality, is carefully and thoughtfully designed with the question, “how can we make this even better for families?”
What is your favorite physical activity? My favorite physical activity has to either be playing sports with friends, exploring the great outdoors, or community service, like building a home from scratch.

Fitness Instructor, Movement & Exercise
Nea is a multidisciplinary fitness trainer, nutrition coach and power yoga teacher that loves living a healthy active lifestyle. A mother of three kids ages 5, 7 & 9, in her free time she enjoys spending time outdoors: climbing, skiing, hiking, paddling... anything and everything! Her education background is in physics engineering and business administration, but sports & yoga have always been her passion. She continues to educate herself in those fields #alwaysastudent :)
What do you love about SpringSpot? I love that it allows parents to workout while their kids are doing something fun and meaningful at the same time. It’s not like just leaving the kids at another childcare which I know parents don’t always feel comfortable with.
