During her childhood in Woodbridge, Connecticut, Debbie was active in competitive figure skating and enjoyed pursuing tennis, gymnastics, ballet, and modern dance in her free time. After college, she ran and counseled in a nutritionist’s office before moving to the furniture and design industry as a successful sales executive.
About ten years into her thirty-year career, she was introduced to Pilates at Canyon Ranch and fell in love. When the opportunity presented itself, Debbie followed her heart and made a career change. She earned her Pilates certification from the Equinox Pilates Institute: a perfect fit given her lifelong participation in sports, fitness, and athletic conditioning. With a strong emphasis on the basic tenets of Pilates and the layering of classical exercises, Debbie believes the most important skill one can continue to hone is that of “teaching the body in front of you.” She finds empowerment in bringing a contemporary fitness twist to the Pilates group setting and approaches every class with an open heart, passion and enthusiasm.
