I relocated to Portland in 2017 with my husband, two kids and dog “Dusty the Husky.” I have been working in the fitness industry for almost 20 years with a background in group fitness and one-on-one training. I graduated from the University of Maryland Baltimore County with a BA in Visual Preforming Arts/Dance in 1999. I specialized in Modern, Ballet, Tap, Jazz and Contemporary. After graduating I worked in Hospitality while getting my Pilates certifications. I completed my mat certificate with Quantum Fitness out of Washington, DC in 1999 and my machine certificate with Core Dynamic Pilates out of Santa Fa New Mexico in 2006. I moved to Park City, UT in 2002 and began teaching at fitness clubs and private member communities. I co owned Studio BE Pilates in Park City for 10 years, there I trained private clients, partners and circuit classes. I also worked in the Wellness Center at the Montage Deer Valley. Since moving to Portland I have been working at Club Pilates. I am excited to continue training and helping others stay fit and healthy. I blend my background of dance, gymnastics, and fitness into my personal style of teaching Pilates, which is high energy and always ‘fun’, yet always staying true to the traditional principles of ‘The Method’. After teaching Pilates for almost 20 years I feel it is my love and career.
