BSc in Physical Therapy; Ithaca College in NY State 1991, MA in Applied Physiology; Columbia University in NY City 1994, Certified in Pilates; APPI in 2002
I have enjoyed a fulfilling career as a chartered physiotherapist since 1991 before becoming certified in Pilates in 2002. Having initially trained in Pilates in 1999 to use it as adjunct to rehabilitation I was able to see the benefits first hand when used with clients suffering from poor balance, chronic pain or decreased stability. This inspired me to complete my full certification with Australian Pilates Physiotherapy Institute in 2002. I then began teaching clients of all levels in Battersea where I live with my husband and three children. I have thoroughly enjoyed this opportunity to teach Pilates and watch the improvement and enthusiasm of so many clients as they discover Pilates and its many benefits.
Following my certification in 2002 my continuing education has included the following;
- Small equipment training
- The antenatal/postnatal Pilates course
- The Pilates and theraband training
