Joey has a B.S. in Chemical Engineering from University of Rochester, with a minor in Anthropology. Pilates enlightened her life in 2005 after the birth of her third child. Pilates became a deep passion and has been the backbone for Joey maintaining and supporting a healthy body and soul. Joey completed a 450-hour comprehensive instructor training program through Pilates Chicago and became PMA (Pilates Method Alliance) certified in July 2011. As of August of 2019, PMA certification is now NCPT (Nationally Certified Pilates Teacher). Joey’s style of teaching is ever evolving as she continues to learn about Pilates and all its valuable effects on movement through ongoing participation at workshops and conferences. She has taken many workshops with Master Teachers and incorporates new knowledge to classes and private sessions. With three growing boys, including one with physical disabilities, Joey is very aware that everyone’s needs are different and change with time. She offers her clients exercises that they need on that day to strive toward a healthy life.
