I am trained in The ORIGINAL Barre Class developed by Lotte Berk through The London Method, a certified American Barre Technique Master Barre Instructor, a NASM Certified Personal Trainer and Fitness Nutrition Specialist, an AFAA Certified Group Fitness Instructor, a Moms Into Fitness Prenatal & Postnatal Fitness and Nutrition Specialist, a Studio Pilates Certified Pilates Instructor, Advanced Crystal Master, Certified Oracle Card Reader, Clinical Aromatherapist and author who discovered barre — my soulmate workout — while training for the 2016 Boston Marathon.
A long-time runner, former bodybuilder and melanoma skin cancer survivor, my battle with autoimmune disease changed my fitness focus to one that incorporates more mindful, purposeful and low-impact movements and my nutritional focus to one that incorporates a diary-free, gluten-free and sugar-free diet. Since I began my battle with autoimmune disease, I have been developing my own recipes for autoimmune friendly-baked goods and desserts as a way to control my symptoms and to complement my medication.
I am certified in a variety of barre techniques, including BarreAmped Bounce, Prenatal/Postnatal Barre, H.I. (High Intensity) Barre, Barre-Less Barre Ballet Aerobics, Barre Stretch and BOSU Barre Strong.
In 2021, I became a certified Advanced Crystal Master through the Hibiscus Moon Crystal Academy, where I discovered the unique, but undeniable, benefits of the relationship between barre fitness and crystal healing.
A former communication professor and professional and mother of two daughters, I founded The Barre Library for barre enthusiasts seeking a complete mind, body and spirit routine. I am excited to present a virtual sacred space where barre students, instructors and devotees can come together to create a balanced, nourished and supported connection between the mind, the body and the spirit through barre.
