When did you start at SAC? And why do you work in the fitness industry?

I started at SAC in February 2015.  I love teaching Pilates because I get the opportunity to help other people get their bodies strong so they can enjoy and do the other things they love to do!

What is your job title and description?

Pilates Instructor

Education/Experience/Certifications/Awards

I was trained in Santa Barbara, CA through BASI Pilates (Body Arts and Science International).  The BASI Pilates method preserves the classical repertoire and essence of Joseph Pilates’ philosophy while supplementing it with the contemporary scientific knowledge, focusing heavily on human anatomy and human movement.  I also have my bachelor’s degree in Psychology, which is so helpful as an instructor of a method that is also very much about the health of the mind as well as the body.

What are your hobbies?

I love to run and to get crafty with my kiddos, Paige 12 and Carter 10.  My husband and I are also ceramists.

What is something quirky/interesting about you? or What is your favorite quote?

I LOVE to use power tools!  I guess it gives me the feeling of competence, the feeling that I can fix things!
