I have always been a very active person. As a kid growing up in Florida I was a swimmer, gymnast and dancer. When I moved to Colorado 20 years ago my activities changed to hiking, skiing and of course yoga. I also went back to school to complete my degree from Colorado State University with a BS in Pre-Veterinary Medicine and a minor in Biology. Not long after graduating, I met my wonderful husband and we have two beautiful daughters, Kate and Grace along with 2 super cute dogs. My passions in life are my family, animals and Pilates. I began my Pilates journey about 8 years ago after injuring my lower back and I was hooked immediately. Pilates also helped me persevere through a double mastectomy at the age of 41. Today I am the strongest I have ever been both mentally and physically. I believe in what I practice and teach. Pilates can change your life for the better no matter your age or size. With strength comes confidence and that is priceless.
