Favorite thing to eat for breakfast
Oatmeal with a whole peach chopped in. It’s the poor man’s peach cobbler.
I don’t leave home without???
My 2006 iPod nano. I refuse to upgrade my little vintage buddy.
If Joseph Pilates were alive today what would you ask him or have him teach you?
I’d ask him how he managed to persevere in getting his theory and method out to the world.
What qualities do you admire in a teacher?
I love a teacher that reminds me that what I bring to a session is the same energy that I bring to every area of my life. If I give up easy during my practice that would indicate that I give up easy in my life.
Top 3 places you have traveled? Top 3 places you would like to travel?
So I guess my top 3 destinations are so, because they’re entangled with the feel good memories I have:
I tend to break into an English accent spontaneously so when I visited, London, UK, I about died and remained silent.
Sanibel Island, FL, is where my parents used to take us for a week, every summer; and every year we rode bikes around the island, ate pizza and cheeseburgers, from their only pizza and cheeseburger stands, and kayaked. I hope to do the same for my future family.
All politics aside, I heard the Pope give Sunday sermon at Vatican City in Rome and had a, ‘How did I get here?’ moment.
I’d LOVE to visit Portland, Oregon where, according to Portlandia, the dream of the 90’s is alive! I’d drink coffee and eat doughnuts in Seattle. After reading the novel, Middlesex, I must visit Detroit.
How would you describe your fashion style?
Thrifty/Casual. (But with the magic secret power of cleaning up nice.)

A Wrinkle in Time by Madeleine L’Engle
Go confidently in the direction of your dreams! Live the life you’ve imagined.
_Henry David Thoreau
I am an expert in…???
Forgetting to go confidently in the direction of my dreams!
What is the funniest thing you have ever heard in the studio?
My lips are sealed! I’ve had quite a few laughs already with the women of, Pilates in the Grove. They have some sequined sassy pants on! They’ll dance circles around you with their fast wit, whilst wearing said sequined sassy pants.
