Growing up as a gymnast and diver, I had been coached in Pilates long before I practiced on a reformer.  In my early 20’s, I took my first Pilates Reformer class, and fell in love.  I continued to practice, and received my certification in April 2014. Pilates helped me rehab after several sports-related back injuries and two c-sections.


Though my foundation is in classical Pilates, I am passionate about teaching therapeutic, fitness-based, and jump Pilates.  Aside from instructing Pilates, I teach/have taught yoga, aerial yoga, barre, cycle, hiit, mat pilates, calisthenics and gymnastics-based workshops. I stay active by teaching multiple classes, privates sessions, workshops, and retreats along with playing tennis and regularly practicing Pilates, Vinyasa, and gymnastics.


My classes are challenging, intense, and fun with a strong focus on form and safety. I will push you out of your comfort zone, but you will thank me!
