I've been on such an amazing and blessed journey over the past 9 years that has lead me to this moment with you. I first discovered the wonderful world of Pilates when I was a teenager training in competitive dance. I later was able to truly dive deeper into Pilates training while attending East Carolina University to study Dance Performance and Theater. I never realized how much this method would change my life until just a few years ago. As a dancer, Pilates movement felt natural, and matched the intricate technique I had been taught since I was a young child in ballet. The body awareness, injury prevention, breath work, strength, and tone it provides is what originally attracted me, and still fuels my passion today.
I carried my practice through my first few corporate jobs, and then decided it was time to share the love! I quit corporate America, and dove head first into teaching, spreading the Pilates method as much as I could. I started with my Mat and Reformer certification from N.C. Pilates, and then completed my 750 hour certification in Pilates apparatus from Pilates Method Alliance. I’m passionate about many styles of fitness, and have been trained in TRX, Booty Barre, VBarre, Kettle Bell, and Zumba. I also have a love affair with Yoga! I am Hatha Yoga RYT-200hr certified, and it’s beautiful influence can be seen in all aspects of my life including my Pilates classes. I love working with all types of people, bodies, and ages, including athletes, dancers, post- surgery clients, and brand new mommas.
I've completed the ProBridge Comprehensive Pilates program with BASI studying under Rael Isacowitz and am a Master trainer for the Club Pilates Franchise- where I conduct 500 hour teacher trainings.
My job is passion, and passion is my job! I feel blessed to be able to encourage you to take care of your body, and become your best self through Pilates, a healthy lifestyle, and a happier life! I'm so excited to embark on this journey with you.
