About me:  I originally hail from Lehighton, PA but have been calling Pittsburgh home since 2004 when I attended the University of Pittsburgh. I found my passion for teaching during graduate school when I completed my MFA in Teaching Creative Writing at Chatham University. I was always involved in sports since a young age including over twelve years of gymnastics, field hockey, tennis and figure skating. I found a way to mix my love of teaching and sports together by becoming a group fitness instructor in barre, rebounding, and megaformer. The first time I took [solidcore] I was hooked. I loved how it tested my strength, balance, and my endurance to hold positions for a long period of time. When I’m not sweating under the blue lights you can find me teaching at Meraki Studio or checking out the newest bar/restaurant in town.

Music I love right now: Anything alt rock or EDM. I’m a huge fan of Young the Giant, the Arctic Monkeys, Cold War Kids, Sofi Tukker, and Martin Garrix… I could go on all day

Guilty pleasure: Black Forest gummy bears, reading while laying in the sun, deep tissue massages.

Superpower:  The ability to read minds

Inner Rockstar:  Gwen Stefani – especially her No Doubt days

Favorite move to give you the shakes: Kneeling inner thighs at the back
