MASTER PILATES TRAINER & STUDIO OWNER
After incurring an injury during marathon training in 2007 I turned to Pilates versus surgery for rehabilitation. I realized that this practice was life changing, and I decided to pursue my certification through the PhysicalMind Institute.
Since my initial training I've has gone on to become a PMA Certified Pilates teacher; complete the Balanced Body Master Instructor teacher training program; completed TRX qualification training and attended numerous ongoing conferences and workshops.
I have a Bachelor of Science in both Biology and Business Administration, graduating from the University of Illinois Circle Campus and Elmhurst College respectively.
I view my position as a Pilates teacher as a culmination of all the things I'm passionate about in life. It encompasses human anatomy, relationship building with clientele and helping to motivate them with their health and fitness goals.. .. that all these prior experiences benefit my teaching. Students say I have a unique mix: blending knowledge of anatomy & biomechanics; personal interaction and a visual style of teaching...all with a touch of levity!
I relocated from the Chicago in 2017 to El Dorado Hills, CA with my husband, two daughters and our pet menagerie.
