I began practicing Pilates in 2003 as a way to strengthen my core as well as a way to rehab a back and neck injury. After a short time working with the method she realized how much stronger, balanced and pain free I had become, which allowed me to pursue my other fitness passions such as running, hiking, weight training, cycling and most recently PIckleball as well as keep up with my two young boys.
I loved the work so much i set out to pursue a career as a personal trainer, Pilates instructor, body worker and health coach.
I hold certifications through Polestar Pilates, National Academy of Sports Medicine, Anusara Yoga, Original Strength and NIA. I am also a Reiki practitioner and have studied many different methods of bodywork helping to bring my clients bodies to their optimal level of health and performance, enhancing their lives to their fullest potential.
My goal working with each client is to design and implement programs that focus on each clients individual needs and goals, whether it be training for a marathon, weight loss, lean muscle gain, rehabbing injuries or simply feeling alive, healthy, strong and centered into their bodies.
Over the years, my clients have benefited from my innovative style, resourcefulness, knowledge and skill to guide them towards their optimum health and fitness.
In my free time I enjoy exploring Austin, healthy cooking, gardening, paddle boarding, hiking, traveling and spending time with family and friends.
