Q: What was your inspiration to become a Pilates Instructor?

A: I have always been a “mover.” Growing up, I was a cheerleader, competitive dancer, and gymnast. It wasn’t until two debilitating car accidents in my 20s that I discovered Pilates, which is a powerful modality for pain reduction. I decided to deepen my practice by enrolling in a Teacher Training Certification program so that I could help others find joy and strength in movement.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Q: What mentor has influenced your career the most?

A: Dawn Chouman has been incredibly influential in my decision to pursue Pilates and fitness as a career. I’ve learned so much from her. She’s taught me that every setback will make me a more empathetic and understanding teacher. She is simply the best of the best!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Q: What do you do like to do for fun?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

A: I love hiking and exploring Austin with my husband and our rescue dog, Lucy. I also love traveling, trying new restaurants, cheering for the UNC Tar Heels, and reading.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Q: If you indulge, are you a savory or sweets person?

A: Savory. Right now I’m obsessed with the Trader Joe’s Dill Pickle Popcorn. Don’t knock it ‘til you try it!!

Q: Can you tell us more about Lucy?

A: I rescued Lucy while I was living in the Mississippi Delta. She was found outside of the BB King museum, so I named her Lucille (after BB King’s guitar). She’s 9 years young!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Q: Beach or Mountains?⠀⠀⠀

A: Beach.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Q: If you could have any superpower, what would you choose and why?⠀

A: I would choose the ability to fly! I love traveling, so it would be great to see the world from a different angle. Also, I would be able to beat Austin traffic!
