Chrissy began her healthcare journey by studying athletic training at East Carolina University and she has over 6 years of experience working with athletes and keeping them healthy. She furthered her education by obtaining her doctorate degree in physical therapy at University of Miami where she developed an appreciation for the importance of posture and a healthy, balanced body. In Miami she first was exposed to Pilates and immediately fell in love with the way Pilates builds a strong foundation through functional movements. As a healthcare provider, Chrissy believes strongly in a holistic approach and she appreciates the parallels between medicine and fitness. She has the opportunity to bridge these two practices by teaching at Club Pilates and treating patients in an orthopedic and sports medicine outpatient clinic. Her favorite quote by Joseph Pilates is “Change happens through movement and movement heals.” Chrissy received her Pilates training through Pilates in the Grove in Miami for mat and all levels of apparatus and is certified by the Pilates Method Alliance. She recently moved to Wilmington from Miami and is excited to join the Club Pilates team to help bring the benefits of Pilates to the Wilmington community.
