Treatment/Training Philosophy:

I believe in joyful movement.  If we can strengthen our bodies and our minds while having fun, then joy will follow.

Favorite Quote:

"In the end we conserve only what we love; we will love only what we understand; and we will understand only what we are taught." ~Baba Dioum, 1968.

I do Pilates because: It makes me feel fantastic!

My inspirations are:  People who find new movement within their own bodies where they thought it wasn't possible.

Interesting fact:

I was a Marine Mammal Trainer for 10 years, working with dolphins, seals, sea lions and walruses.  I am also a puzzle addict.

I want to learn: As much as possible!  In so many different aspects of life!  Never stop learning!

Favorite activity outside of work:

I love to hang out with my kids, seriously, I love when school is out!  I also love to cook...and then there's the puzzle thing...


I live in Alameda with my husband, two children, two kitties, and beloved dog, Edgar.

Educated where:
