About Me

My original Pilates training was completed with Marie-Jose Blom in 1997 and my certification as a Pilates instructor is with the accredited Pilates Method Alliance.  My Franklin Method certification includes Levels I, II and III. I hold an M.S. in Kinesiology and am ACSM-certified as a Clinical Exercise Physiologist.
I opened my private Pilates studio in Monterey in 1997 and added Gyrotonic in 1998. I have worked at Community Hospital of the Monterey Peninsula since 2017 in the Cardiopulmonary Rehabilitation department, coaching patients recovering from cardiac procedures like bypass surgery and valve replacement as well as heart attack, diabetes, pulmonary disease or transplantation. I can be found on LinkedIn and on Twitter as @PilatesNinja. As a musician and dancer myself, I understand the special demands of the performance artist.
