I have been studying movement since the age of 15 when I starting teaching ballet. I then continued my own education at Western Michigan University, dancing in the University Ballet Theater. I studied Pilates instruction through Balanced Body University, 2007, certified Pilates instructor through Physical Mind Institute in 2010, and Pilates Method Alliance in 2017. The intrigue of Neuro-kinetics caught my attention, and I was certified Level 1 in 2015. I am also a Licensed Massage Therapist, graduating from Rockford Career College in 2016. In March 2018, I graduated from the 200-hour program of Thai Bodywork taught by Paul Fowler in Chicago called Blue Lotus Thai Healing Studies.
I spent years teaching mat Pilates as a contractor for Collins Aerospace Systems as well as an employee at the YMCA and Peak Sports Club.
Currently, I do all of my teaching and massage therapy as a private contractor through my business, the Bodyworkshop LLC.
