A bit about me.

I discovered Pilates in 2008. It only took five minutes of my first Pilates mat class at a 24 hour fitness in Seattle to be addicted. At the time I was overtraining and injured. My right shoulder was killing me and my right knee ached after long runs. After a couple mat classes I started reformer classes at the Pacific Ballet Pilates studio and got a lot stronger and I started to feel better.  I went on to qualify and run the Boston Marathon in 2010. 

I moved to Austin and started massage school in 2011 {MT116572.} and pretty soon my shoulder started to feel better with weekly bodywork. The real magic happened in 2012  when I found the Postural Restoration Institue. A pilates client was working with a PT in Austin who she called “the best PT in Texas.” I was intrigued by the exercises and set out to learn more.
