    I've enjoyed almost 27 years in the health and wellness business thus far, having worked with hundreds of women of all shapes and sizes, ages and fitness levels. I am a mom and a busy entrepreneur, certified personal trainer and program creator dedicated to promoting realistic, fitness and well-being for for women. Inspired by the practice of Joseph Pilates, I found my calling early on providing fun, functional, safe and effective fitness and lifestyle solutions to women while empowering and educating them to achieve lasting, healthy, lifelong changes to embrace and nurture aging - not fight it. My ultimate goal is to foster a deeper appreciation of health, fitness and wellness in women by removing the fear, barriers and obstacles preventing them from living their best life! I believe that commitment and consistency are vital keys to success in adhering to healthy lifestyle success.
