HOW I GOT HERE
Before I became a Pilates teacher and a world traveler, I was a cocktail waitress and bartender at the hottest clubs in Las Vegas and Miami Beach. I was the original party girl and lived a crazy unhealthy lifestyle. I didn’t know anything about how to be healthy, and I never worked out.
My life was in the fast lane for years, and it was work hard and party harder. I was young lost and insecure, and I didn’t know any better. My lifestyle had caught up to me, and I felt like complete crap. One day I took a Pilates class, and it completely changed my life. I committed to becoming a Pilates teacher and health coach, and I never looked back to my wild party girl lifestyle.
As soon as I became a teacher, I hit the ground running and dove headfirst into a healthier lifestyle. My dream was always to travel around the world and create a wellness blog. My friends, family, and clients are always asking for exercises and tips. I’m so excited to be able to share my knowledge, and this is why I’m here. I know first hand how HARD it can be to change your lifestyle, and I’m here to support you! Please feel free to reach out with any questions.
