I was born and raised in Reno, graduating from Reno High School in 1990. I ventured off to Corvallis, Oregon to attend Oregon State University. During my college years, I discovered a love for health, wellness, physical activity and helping people overcome challenges to live their best lives, which led me attend physical therapy school at Pacific University in Forest Grove, Oregon. Upon completing school in 1997, my husband and I returned to Nevada and established our home in Sparks. I worked at Washoe Medical Center (now Renown) for 5+ years before transitioning to working as a physical therapist in the school district. I have always enjoyed keeping fit through a variety of physical activities—jogging, group exercise classes, hiking, yoga, and, of course, Pilates! I am currently finishing up my training to become an IM=X certified Pilates instructor. I look forward to sharing the benefits of Pilates with our community.
