Treatment/Training Philosophy: Encouraging people (in a safe environment) to put to the test their often unexamined beliefs in what their body can and cannot do.

Specialties: Pilates and Yoga

Favorite Quote: "Be yourself; everyone else is already taken." ~Oscar Wilde

I do Pilates because: I enjoy it.

My inspirations are: Athletes and musicians. The discipline necessary to return to practice on a daily basis is awe-inspiring and impelling.

My favorite charities are: Plan International which is an organization that advances children's rights and equality for girls in 71 countries across the world. And, Reading is Fundamental the leading voice for children’s literacy.

I want to learn: To play the drums.

Pets: Sadie... My lovely tuxedo cat.

I hold a personal trainer certificate from both ACSM and IDEA, as well as a certificate to practice Massage Therapy from the McKinnon Institute in Oakland. My Pilates training and certifications were acquired through the Ellie Herman Studios, the Ron Fletcher Program and PMA. My love and interest of functional movement have drawn me to study and participate in Iyengar Yoga, Feldenkrais, and Gyrotonics as well.
