Jackie is a Certified Pilates Instructor through Balanced Body and has been teaching since 2010. She discovered a love for Pilates while attending the University of Illinois, but her love grew stronger while using it to rehabilitate a shoulder injury a few years later. Pilates’ ability to improve posture, tone and strengthen muscles, and alleviate back and joint pain has kept her passionate about this form of movement. She has had the opportunity to train with many esteemed instructors, including Lolita San Miguel, Tom McCook, Cara Reeser, Troy McCarty, Karen Clippinger, and Erin Myers. Jackie believes in Pilates’ principles for rehabilitation as well as total body conditioning. She has worked with individuals of all ages, including those with scoliosis and pre- and post-natal women. She and her husband live in Hendersonville and have two children. She serves on the Vanderbilt Ingram Cancer Center Ambassador team and in her free time enjoys baking, tennis, skiing, running, and being on the lake.
