    As a lifelong dancer and movement enthusiast, I have always found that movement heals.  I was also fortunate enough to train in NYC at Marymount Manhattan College and with the renowned  Martha Graham Dance Company.  I was introduced to Pilates at a young age and always found it to be a great way to keep my body aligned and to help recover from a myriad of dance related injuries.  I have studied and performed locally with NACRE Dance, Dance Eclectic, YDC, Berkshire Ballet and Maude Baum & Co as well as performed in local theater with NYSTI, Park Playhouse, Steamer 10 and others.  When an extensive ankle injury set me back in college, I decided to take a hiatus from dance and pursue other interests.  After spending several years managing health clubs and nearly 15 years in real estate property management, I began suffering from the effects of being confined to a desk all day.  This included a bulging disk,  a pinched nerve, and a stress level that had risen beyond a level I was willing to sustain.  My family had recently increased in size with the blessing of the birth of my daughter, but I found it increasingly difficult to care for her without constant and excessive pain.  It was then that I turned my full attention to Pilate.  I could not care for my family, if I could not care for myself first..  I left the corporate world and devoted myself to completing my Pilates certifications and to my wonderful daughter.
    Through the Beacon Pilates Teacher Training program, I have completed Beginner/Intermediate Mat, Comprehensive Apparatus and Advanced Series certifications.  I am now pleased to share my knowledge and offer these training services to you.  I truly believe, and have direct experience, that when the weight of the world (work, illness, injury, stress...) brings you down, Pilates will help bring you back to life.  I can't wait to help you look and feel your best!
