I grew up in Nantucket, Massachusetts, and became interested in Pilates at Connecticut College. There I began taking mat classes twice a week before ballet class, and saw how dramatically it improved my dancing. I earned a BA in Dance and French in 2004, and continued practicing Pilates at the Pilates Center of San Francisco (PCSF). With a history of low back issues and sacrum and pelvis instability, I found Pilates to be the key to surviving as a dancer. PCSF owner and later my mentor, Martt Lawrence, suggested that I go through the Metropolitan Pilates training program in Seattle, WA with Master teacher Dorothee Vandewalle. I was certified in January 2010 by Vandewalle. I attend continuing education workshops every year with Master teachers such as Vandewalle, Jay Grimes, Kathi Ross-Nash, Alycea Ungaro, Mari Winsor, Chris Robinson, and MeJo Wiggin. Before moving to Asheville NC, I taught Pilates in San Francisco and in Geneva, Switzerland. I opened my own home studio in 2011. It is a small private studio with Gratz equipment and I teach group classes a block away in a beautiful renovated old church space. I danced with RAWdance in San Francisco ( and with the Asheville Contemporary Dance Theater ( for four years, and have been dancing with Lindsey Kelley Dance ( since 2013. My mission is to share Pilates with as many people as I can, to teach with them the truth about what Pilates really is and was, and to help as many bodies feel good, strong, and as mobile as possible!
