I am a true believer in the healing power of movement. I’ve been working with people in a variety of capacities since 1994 to help improve mobility and well-being, and have marveled at the body’s inherent knowledge and resiliency. I’m very excited now to use Pilates to help people rediscover their bodies, their balance, their strength, and their center.

I worked as a registered nurse in hospitals for nearly 20 yrs. In the midst of that, and while raising a family, I began looking for ways to release tension and take care of myself more deeply. I fell in love with dance fitness, and found my playfulness. I attained my AFAA group fitness certification began teaching cardio hip hop in 2014. I soon realized that I would need to direct some of my efforts towards proactive training for injury prevention, which is how I discovered Pilates Reformer. The focused, controlled movements are challenging yet fluid, often dance-like in themselves. I trained and earned my Pilates certification and have been teaching Pilates in South San Jose since 2016. I continue to enjoy learning about the body and all the ways that we can work with it.

When I am not teaching, I enjoy working in my yard and garden, hiking with friends, reading, cooking, and spending (a tremendous amount of) time at the ice rink watching my daughters play ice hockey.
