Though teaching exercise since the age of 16, she didn’t discover Pilates until a bad horseback riding accident landed her in intensive care with multiple fractures throughout the left side of her body. It seemed typical exercise just wasn’t working to address her rehab so someone suggested Pilates! She loved it from the beginning – an exercise program that made sense not only to heal her but strengthen her until her riding went to a new level.
She started teaching her riders after becoming a fully certified advanced Pilates instructor through Stott Pilates out of Canada. But soon she discovered how much Pilates could really change people and their lives through making the back straighter, balanced side to side and just more self-aware. So she began to teach Pilates full time as well as becoming trained as an instructor of yoga and aerial yoga.
As well as Pilates, she also used her skill as a massage therapist to help people work on their body. Currently she is the massage therapist for both the MSU football and softball teams as she has been for 15 years.
When not teaching, she is out on her paddleboard, camping in state and national parks in her little egg trailer -always with her 2 little dogs. She grew up in Tallahassee after being born in Biloxi, MS with her schooling in Memphis, TN including a BA from the University of Memphis.

We encourage all of our new students to establish a strong foundation prior to moving into duets or group classes. Once you have completed your Initial Consultation, we recommend taking a minimum of 3 additional private sessions. The personal attention provided during private sessions is extremely valuable and we understand that. That is why we designed an “Introductory Package” specifically for new clients at a special rate! These sessions will help you become more familiar with our instructors, teaching styles, basic exercise, cueing, the equipment and your body. After your 3rd session, we may recommend additional private appointments or will suggest some classes that may be beneficial for you.
Scheduling a Recurring Appointment
A recurring appointment is an appointment that happens every week at the same time with the same instructor. If you need to cancel any of your appointments, simply e-mail us 24-hours prior to your scheduled appointment. Please note; in order to accommodate other clients and honor our instructors’ time, we allow two consecutive cancellations; after which we reserve the right to open the appointment to others. Recurring appointments are a great way to make your health a priority and ensure you won’t have to wait for an appointment to become available. Please take advantage of this service by contacting the studio to schedule!
To attend an Equipment Pilates class, students with no or limited experience must complete a minimum of 3 private sessions and receive instructor approval. New students with equipment Pilates experience must contact the studio for approval. Once approved to take classes, simply register and pay online via MINDBODY. Non-equipment class participants do not need prior approval.
Classes fill quickly… please add yourself to the waitlist, it does clear and you will receive a notification as soon as you are added to the class!
