Michelle, originally from Hershey, PA, grew up with a love of dancing and performing from the young age of four. This led to a love for cheerleading which continued into college, cheering for Penn State, and even coaching high school squads after graduating. Michelle was first introduced to Pilates in college and loved how challenging each exercise was. After moving to Raleigh with her husband in 2007 she wanted to start taking Pilates classes again. She began taking Pilates and Barre classes for a few years. When she found out she was pregnant, she was happy to learn that she could continue her Pilates practice through her entire pregnancy. After the birth of her son she realized she wanted to become an instructor and share her passion for Pilates with everyone. She wants clients to know that anyone can do Pilates at Club Pilates! When Michelle is not at the studio, she is spending time with her husband Eric, sons Maverick and Hudson and yorkie pup Maui.
