My passion for fitness started as a child with a love for the water. I loved to play at the beach in the waves whenever I could. I took up swimming as my sport throughout middle school and high school. Being on the swim team and water polo team in college lead me to one of my first jobs as an age group swim coach working with kids 5-8 years old. That was around the time I decided to learn how to surf and a few years later I was lucky enough to start working with Mary Setterholm as a surf instructor!


When Pilates was introduced to me by a friend in 1999 I was amazed at how much my surfing had improved. I felt balance and control that I never had before and it got me to thinking about fitness as a career not just a hobby. I was so interested in fitness as a science at that point in my life that I changed my college major from biology to kinesiology. I got certified in Pilates Mat and Apparatus through the PhysicalMind Institute & have taught Pilates at several locations; gyms, corporate fitness centers, retirement homes, private studios and at my school Cal State Fullerton to students and faculty. I graduated with Honors in 2004 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Kinesiology with a specialization in Health & Fitness Promotion.

I love movement and encourage people of all ages to find their joy in moving! My personal fitness regime includes Pilates, Yoga, Surfing, Paddling & playing with my pets. I would be happy to help you start your own lifestyle/life altering fitness journey. For more information CONTACT ME
