Nicola came to Hampton Roads thanks to her military service. Originally from the beautiful island of Jamaica, she served in the navy for several years as an engineer and now has become a Pilates instructor due to her own powerful journey with Pilates. She came to Pilates seeking an alternative from traditional medicine for her chronic pain due to fibromyalgia and scoliosis. Because of the amazing results she experienced transforming not only her body but also her mind, she made the decision to become an instructor to help others like herself. When Nicola is not in the studio, she enjoys spending time with family, friends, reading and being a part of nature.
