Hello, glad you’re here.
Let’s get you moving in your power.
My passion is helping everyone I know get the abundant joy that they deserve in this life through forming a strong connection to Self and Source.
Body movement has been my primary way to communicate, experience the world and connect with joy for as long as I can remember. From childhood dance class in Kentucky to outdoor sports in college, physical labor at the beginning of my career and now loving/chasing my two young boys. I’ve always been in motion.
Engaging and empowering others, that’s my primary mission. Using movement and energy to clearly convey my message is how I’ve created my livelihood.
My formal study of movement and somatic work began almost 20 years ago and continues every day. Some highlights include:
London: Mentorship from Walter Carrington (protégé of F.M. Alexander) and from Glynn McDonald (teacher for The Globe Theatre).
Harvard: Ongoing study with Tommy Thompson, the Alexander teacher for Harvard’s Graduate Advanced Theatre Program.
The Alexander Technique of Cincinnati: A 3 year, 1800 certification under the mentorship of Vivien and Neil Schapera
The Pilates Method: 1000 hour Comprehensive Certification at the former Body Wellness Center under the mentorship of Jennifer Hetzler
The Fletcher Pilates Method: Another 1000 hours to obtain qualified teacher status under the direct mentorship of Ron Fletcher (a protégé of Joseph and Clara Pilates and former Martha Graham dancer)
Today: I spend Sundays with Fanchon Shur. A choreographer and Laban Analyst…who happens to be 80 years old!
Additional Instruction: Pat Guyton (Director of The Pilates Conservatory), Kyria Sabin and Sabra Blacklock (Director and Faculty teacher, respectively, of The Ron Fletcher Program of Study).
When I’m not supporting awesome body transformation in my studio, I’m playing monopoly or cooking in Cincinnati with my family. My fantastic husband, two wonderfully crazy boys and my mom are my world. A lifelong Wildcat basketball fan, I dig dancing and reading very much.
I’d love to hear where your challenges and triumphs are on your path to confident body movement and image. Let’s get to know each other better 🙂
