Why she loves her job (in her own words)

Teaching Pilates lets me combine my love for physical fitness and sports with my skill as an educator.  I also love to expand my knowledge base by continuing to practice a multitude of activities from crossfit to yoga.  It thrills me when my clients tell me that they have started a new physical activity because their Pilates training made them feel like they could do it!
