After having three children and trying different exercise regimens that didn't work, didn't last or didn't fit into my lifestyle, I discovered - and fell in love with - Pilates. What started out as just another exercise class turned into a passion. I could see and feel the difference. Pilates was transforming my posture, core strength, joint mobility and mind-body connection. My growing passion and love for Pilates was the driving force in becoming a Pilates instructor.
I hold a Bachelor of Science degree in Biology from Virginia Commonwealth University. In 2013, I received comprehensive training to become a fully certified Pilates Instructor. I have been teaching Pilates since January 2014, and I am nationally certified through the PhysicalMind Institute as well as the National Pilates Certification Program. With over 1000 hours of education and training, I continue my study of Pilates through mentorships, workshops, seminars and classes, most notably with: Naomi Leiserson, Carol Appel, Kristen Iuppenlatz Grech, Madeline Black, Courtney Miller, Blossom Leilani Crawford, Maria Leone, Darien Gold and Dr. Sarah Ellis Duvall PT, DPT, CPT, CNC.
Furthermore, I have completed the Balanced Body Bridge Program which is a customized continuing education pursuit for comprehensively trained Pilates Instructors. As with most things in life, there is always more to learn and room for growth, and I want to use my extensive training and knowledge to provide the highest quality instruction for my clients/students.
When I am not immersed in Pilates, you can find me at the beach or bible study...volunteering at Lowcountry Food Bank or GrowFood Carolina...or just spending time with my family and furbabies.
