More about me

I am a Pilates and Gyrotonic Instructor, as well as a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist (and have a BS in exercise science). I love my job, and find fullfillment in helping people reach their full potential. I know how to train, and a lot about the human body, feel free to ask my a question!
