I’m originally from a suburb of Chicago called Naperville. I first moved out to Colorado in 1998. We did a brief stint in Seattle and moved back in 2009.
I went to Indiana University-Bloomington and got a B.S. in business with an emphasis in computer information systems. After college I worked for Ernst & Young and did business analysis and IT work.
After my kids were born, I decided to stay at home and work part-time. I fell in love with Pilates and decided to become an instructor. It’s been a really great, flexible job for me. I have two boys that keep me busy. One is in elementary school and the other is in middle school.
My passion for Pilates
My business that I run out of my home is called CorePoint Pilates. I’m PMA — Pilates Method Alliance — certified. I teach small group mat classes as well as privates and semi-privates. I also work at a Pilates studio called Functional Strength Pilates in Lone Tree.
My goal is to provide high quality, classical Pilates instruction in a home environment at an affordable cost. My goal is also to get as many people doing Pilates as possible because it’s an excellent form of exercise that benefits other types of exercise. It’s good for anyone regardless of age or condition. It strengthens your core, all four layers of your abs and can lengthen your muscles.
I love Pilates and I love to teach Pilates because it is both physically and mentally stimulating. It is a proactive way to help, heal and strengthen your body.
The best part of Highlands Ranch
All of the recreation centers, paths, hiking and biking trails. They lend to an active lifestyle. We have a clean, organized system for everyone to use.
Personally, being from Chicago, I love living somewhere where I can see the mountains.
I took dance lessons for 13 years. In high school, I was in a pre-professional ballet company called Salt Creek Ballet. I practiced for about 20 hours a week. I made some great friends and learned a lot of life lessons.
