Emily originally hails from the Florida Panhandle. As a Navy wife, she has found herself living in a variety of places across the U.S.; the one constant in her life has been fitness. As a lifelong athlete, she struggled to find an exercise that she could continue throughout her life without damaging her body. After discovering Pilates, she found a low-impact way to continue doing what she loves and it became clear that she was doing what she had been destined to do. In addition, Emily has always had the desire to help those around her and Pilates gives Emily the opportunity to help others heal through movement. Her favorite part of teaching is seeing others create lifelong exercise habits that help them in their everyday lives.
