She continues to stay current through study and continuing education classes. Her teaching experience includes teaching Pilates mat work and equipment to a wide-range of skill levels from beginners to more advanced students/clients and in a wide-range of venues from academic, fitness clubs, private studios, and at her church.  She is a member of the Pilates Method Alliance.
