Certified Pilates Instructor
I was introduced to Pilates in 2008, but it became my passion in 2011 as a supplement to my fitness and tennis regimen. I am a USPTA Developmental Tennis Coach. I coached at the high school level in Ashwaubenon, WI (GO PACK GO!) and have taught junior tennis for the City of Scottsdale and Fountain Hills Park and Rec programs. Pilates has aided me in the rehabilitation of my torn Rotator Cuff and Elbow Tendinitis granting continued mobility and strength in my core and upper body. I'm also a golfer, so I incorporate Pilates breathing, stretching and core work into my training. I may not be able to reduce your handicap, but through Pilates exercises you'll experience increased rotation, improved balance, breathing and greater core and hip flexibility adding distance to your irons and Driver. I completed my Pilates Sports Center Training Program in 2012 and am a member of the Pilates Method Alliance. I currently teach on Balanced Body Equipment; Reformer, Tower, Cadillac, Wunda Chair and Mat exercises using a variety of props. I believe in modification to gain the core understanding of Pilates and adding variations to an exercise when the student is ready for a challenge! Speaking of a challenge, I also teach TRX and Barre.
