Tell us about yourself
I have been a Certified Personal Trainer and Group Fitness Instructor since 2006. I have taught Mat Pilates for the past eight years and became a Polestar-certified Pilates instructor in 2020. I have worked in physical therapy clinics with patients and have been trained in a rehabilitative form of Pilates through Polestar. My motivation is to help people to heal and recover from the pain and injury that brought them to see me in the first place. My happiness comes from seeing the improvement that they make toward their recovery.

My biggest accomplishment as a business owner has been to develop my brand over the past two years into a successful online business.
What's one of the hardest things that come with being a business owner?
One of the hardest things that come with being a business owner for me is finding how to reach people in the most effective way. The fitness industry is very competitive, and finding the right niche can be challenging.
