I graduated from the University of Montana with a degree in Health and Human Performance. My in-depth studies of human anatomy, physiology, kinesiology and biomechanics awarded me the title of Health and Fitness Specialist. While attending college I concurrently embarked on a professional track as a dancer, immersing myself in ballet, modern and jazz. My studies eventually expanded to include ballroom, country, Argentine tango and west coast swing. I combined my education to encompass personal training, dance instruction, choreography, performance and competition.
My post-graduate studies included becoming a Certified Medical Exercise Specialist, Stott Pilates Instructor and Ballroom Instructor. My varied background and expertise allows me to see clients and students dealing with physical discomfort as well as those seeking higher levels of technical dance and movement proficiency.
In addition to comprehensive fitness and technical training, my specialty is in developing preventive wellness programs to address postural and alignment concerns and manage musculoskeletal pain in the dance and fitness population.
