I discovered the Pilates Method while I was a college student in New Orleans. I was fortunate enough to work as a front desk manager for Uncle Joe's Pilates studio for a time. I say "fortunate", because I witnessed on a daily basis as the amazing instructors worked with their clients to bring them back to health. It became clear to me quite quickly that Pilates was not just about fitness, it was truly about helping and connecting with human beings one at a time while they worked to achieve their goals.
In 2001 I moved to Colorado and was still committed to my own personal Pilates practice. I realized quickly I wanted a future teaching the Pilates Method and all it had to offer. I graduated from the internationally renowned Pilates Center in 2004, and have never regretted my decision. I now have over 13 years experience teaching Pilates.
I am fortunate to say under the tutelage of one of the most renowned and experienced teacher of teachers, Cara Reeser www.carareeserpilates.com for 10 years, I was able to expand my knowledge and vision of the Pilates Method. Although I enjoy teaching everyone, I specialize in chronic low back pain, as well as pre/post hip surgery patients. A family love for ice hockey led to a collaboration with The Goalie Guild www.thegoalieguild.com to develop a movement education program for hockey athletes we call Off the Ice, Onto the Mat.
In order to more effectively help my clients improve their total health, I obtained an additional degree in nutrition which I incorporate into my practice on a regular basis. You'll often hear me say that food and movement are medicine for mind, body and spirit and I am passionate about showing you how.
