Stephanie was born and raised in Toledo, Ohio and fled to Southern California after graduating from Eastern Michigan University with her bachelor’s in Business Administration. After 9 years in California, she decided to move to Chicago to get back to the Midwest values and the lovely winters (not!). Stephanie was introduced to Pilates around 2017 through her personal trainer. She was instantly hooked and has been practicing regularly since. As a full-time Project Manager in a high stress environment, Stephanie enjoys the feeling of the stress-free accomplishment after each one of her Pilates classes. Stephanie decided last year to enroll in the Club Pilates Instructor Training Program to begin her journey in transitioning from a demanding career to a position that focuses on mind and body and overall health.
