Specializes in: Rehabilitation-based Pilates therapy for all ages, specialized Pilates conditioning for athletes and dancers
Just as I began working in my first job as a professional ballet dancer with the Joffrey Ballet in New York City, I was injured in a partnering move. It resulted in a spinal fracture. As a last resort to overcoming the pain, the doctors recommended Pilates. I attribute my 25-year dance career to the Pilates technique, which became my staple of maintaining a healthy, strong body. Retiring from dance to becoming a Pilates instructor was a natural transition.
My fitness philosophy
I’ve always believed that fitness is a combination of many disciplines, Pilates being an important piece. We all have different needs and goals, and as a trainer I honor the individuality and am inspired by the stories and relationships I build with my clients.
Favorite workout tunes
I enjoy a very peaceful musical environment when in the Pilates studio. Get me out running or cross-training and it’s rock ‘n’ roll all the way!
What I love to do in my off time
Hiking, time on the beach, vacations with my family
Favorite Walnut Creek spot
Peet’s Coffee, Walnut Creek Yacht Club, the spectacular open space trails
