Carrie has a Degree in Exercise Science from FIU, where she also competed as a Division 1 Swimmer.
Her love for Pilates came about while nursing a shoulder injury and trying to find a workout routine she loved after 15+ years of swimming. After a few years of practicing, she completed the Core Advancement Teacher Training at Pilates in the Grove.
Outside of the studio she Coaches swimming and enjoys spending time with her husband and two dogs.
