Prior to becoming a fitness professional, I was an overweight, out of shape, stay at home mom who led a sedentary lifestyle. I didn’t know how to start, much less maintain, an exercise program or a healthy lifestyle.
My fitness journey began 20 years ago when I made an appointment with a dietitian in order to lose weight. On the very first visit she informed me that for weight loss to be permanent, exercise was a must. By making exercise a part of my daily life along with healthy lifestyle changes I took control of my health and fitness. A passion for fitness was discovered and a dream to help others achieve their fitness goals was born. Over the years I have taught group fitness, yoga, Pilates, body sculpting and cardio heart rate training as well as personal training. In 2004 I became a STOTT PILATES® Certified Instructor and have continued my education over the years. In 2007 I opened up my own Pilates studio, which is still open today. We have 8 instructors who meet the needs of various clients with a wide range of issues and goals. I became an instructor trainer for STOTT PILATES® in 2013 and I now educate others who want to be instructors. Currently we are installing a Pilates Therapy Program using corrective exercise techniques to help clients alleviate pain and correct alignment to strengthen and transform their bodies.<< Back to the Faculty Page
