I was introduced to Pilates through Dance Medicine at St. Francis Memorial Hospital, as a form of rehabilitation from an injury sustained during my competitive figure skating career. As a nationally ranked figure skater, I had tried many different types of body connection and awareness training, yet during my rehabilitation at Dance Medicine, I experienced transformations in my body which allowed me to return to the ice stronger and more centered than I’d ever been. This “ah-ha” moment led me to find my true passion: Pilates.
Upon retirement from competitive figure skating, I began to study and teach Pilates. I have had the privilege of studying with world-renowned Pilates teachers and specialists such as Diana Herold, Naomi Leiserson, Joy Puelo, Nora St. John, and Adrianne Wrightson. In 2015 I became a Pilates Teacher Trainer and a Balanced Body Master Instructor under the tutelage of Nora St. John.
