I was born and raised in San Diego and have always lived an active lifestyle. I grew up doing competitive gymnastics and dance and it eventually led me to Cal State Fullerton. While attending CSUF I participated on the national award winning dance team and that is something that helped me solidify my decision to major in kinesiology. I worked at a Physical Therapy clinic throughout college and eventually became an exercise specialist. I stayed in that field for ten plus years and gained a plethora of knowledge about the body. Once I moved back to San Diego is when I really got into Pilates. I loved the mental and physical challenge it provides and the positive daily habits it gives me. No matter what the persons age, their constraints or physical nature I love to teach and give everyone a chance to move their body. While I was pregnant I stayed consistent with Pilates 2-4 times a week and I saw the benefits it provided. It kept me moving and I truly believe it helped my body prepare for labor and delivery as well as postpartum. I can’t say enough good things about Pilates and pregnancy after going through it myself.
When I am not teaching Pilates, I am usually running around after my two year old daughter, Ainsley and our yellow lab Django. My husband and I love traveling and can’t wait to plan our next big trip.
