After training her “eye for alignment” at The Tampa Ballet Company, where she achieved the level of soloist, Karen became a dance major at The University of South Florida. She then moved to New York City and began her teaching career at the original barre workout studio: Lotte Berk Method. In 2001, having become a fully certified Pilates instructor through Power Pilates, she taught at that studio’s upper west side Manhattan location. During this time, she studied anatomy and kinesiology with Irene Dowd, adding over 150 hours of education to her background. She became the first manager of the Pilates Studio at The David Barton Gym on Madison Avenue, and completed a certification with the National Academy of Sports Medicine. In 2005 she relocated to New York’s capital region and now works full time as a Pilates/GYROTONIC® instructor. She also worked as a master trainer for Tracey Mallett's Booty Barre®. In 2010, Karen was selected to teach Pilates at the NYSSSA-New York City Ballet program allowing her to stay connected to the dance profession and teach young dancers each summer. She is currently PMA® certified in Pilates and holds an AFFA: Group Exercise Instructor certification. Beyond dance and exercise, Karen continues to be involved in several of the performing arts and is a proud member of two artistic unions: SAG-AFTRA and The Actors’ Equity Association. Karen is excited to combine her love of Pilates, with Barre & TRX at Club Pilates!
