I am a Southern California native who loves traveling, exploring new cuisines, and my rescue pup! I found Pilates after physical therapy for my lower back issues. Pilates was the only thing I found to successfully manage my pain. Because Pilates has had such an incredible impact on my life, I want to share my passion and knowledge with others.
As a Nationally Certified Pilates Teacher (NCPT), I have trained under and continue to learn from some of the best instructors in the Pilates community.
