Hello!  Thank you for taking a moment to explore my website and learning a bit about me.

I believe Pilates can empower you to take charge of your health and well being.  I have been a serious student of Pilates for over twenty years and I still love this work--its richness, its history, its scope of influence, and its ability to adapt to anyone and everyone.

I have been teaching Pilates for 17 years.  My clients range in age from 13-73.  They are dancers and desk workers, lawyers and artists, moms and dads, Pilates teachers and retirees.  They all benefit from their Pilates.  I love my job!

In addition to teaching private clients in my quaint downtown Pilates studio, I teach workshops at hosting Pilates studios, fitness facilities, and dance schools.  I have even taught lunchtime Pilates classes at an architecture firm, a newspaper, a personal finance outfit, and a Fortune 500 company.  I have taught at Minnesota Dance Theatre, Zenon Dance School, the University of Minnesota-Twin Cities, SmartBody Pilates in Amsterdam, Align Pilates, and Six Degrees Pilates in Minneapolis.  I was the Pilates Method Alliance registered director of the Align Teacher Training Program and I continue to instruct future and current Pilates instructors through mentorships.

I was Pilates Method Alliance certified (PMA-CPT) for a number of years.

I am also a professional dancer and have a BA in dance from the University of Minnesota-Twin Cities.
