Since earning my degree from the University of Virginia, I have dedicated my life to functional movement education. From 2005-2007 I worked as a pilates instructor and strength coach in the Washington, DC area. In 2007 I became a STOTT PILATES® Instructor Trainer. In 2008 I moved to Brazil to educate and certify pilates instructors in the STOTT PILATES® method. Currently I live in Austin, TX working within a Masters/Ph.D. program in Neuromuscular Physiology with an emphasis on Low Back Pain. In addition, I am a Lead Instructor Trainer for STOTT PILATES as well as an Licensed Massage Therapist specializing in Active Release Techniques® and Active Isolated Stretching.
After noticing the need to bridge the gap between fascial release and neuromuscular reeducation, I founded the INSIDE-OUT TRAINING with STOTT PILATES® Master Instructor Trainer, Sally Belanger. The goal of this project is to provide movement educators and manual therapists with a low load neuromuscular system to progress "post rehab" clients prior to taking on more aggressive modalities such as personal training, yoga or pilates. We teach this course in both a 4-hour introduction format as well as a full body 20-hour B.A.S.E. (Basic Assessment and Strategy Evaluation) course. I am also a USA Cycling coach as well as a triathon coach.
