I started my fitness journey at 4 years old when I fell in love with gymnastics and dance. Having 3 older brothers, I was introduced to a variety of sports and enjoyed playing soccer and softball. Dancing competitively while growing up, I became very interested in moving and controlling my body through the graceful and strength movements of dance. My appreciation for music and the arts extended into playing the flute, ukulele, guitar, and drums. I also participated in choir and musical theater. I was first introduced to Pilates through my brother, Matthew… he is also an Instructor! Since moving to Eugene, I have enjoyed hiking, visiting the ocean, snowboarding, and checking out Portland. While studying human physiology and biomechanics, I recently completed my certification in Mat & Reformer Pilates. I am in the process of completing my Comprehensive Pilates Certification. When I am not helping out at the studio, or teaching classes, I enjoy bouldering, strength training, and yoga. During any remaining free time, you can find me hanging out with friends and family, learning Japanese, or going to the movies. I look forward to being a part of the Club Pilates Eugene community…and giving each and every member a GREAT workout!
