bio

Born and raised in Barbados, I relocated to New York City in 1998 to pursue a career in the beauty industry. I have been a Hairstylist for 20+ years and a Salon Owner for the last 10 years in Midtown, NYC.

With all of this said, the years that I have spent working in the career that I love had begun to take a toll on my body; and I was experiencing chronic physical pain in my neck and shoulders. The pain was so intense that I had to seek Physical Therapy for treatment and that led me to Pilates. It was at the suggestion of my Physical Therapist that I was made aware of the Restorative Healing Benefits of Pilates; and in 2021, I began my Pilates journey. It was love at first breath and I can truly say that nothing has had such a significant impact on my body than Pilates.

Within 8 months of starting my first class, Pilates has helped to eliminate the chronic pain that I was experiencing in my neck and shoulder areas; and that positive impact on my body is what inspired me to embark on the extensive and rigorous training process to become a Certified Pilates Instructor. I can honestly say that the things that excite us are not random; but they are connected to our purpose in life!

Now as a Certified Pilates Instructor, I am even more fascinated by the human body and its ability to adapt and change no matter how old a person is. My goal is to create and develop Pilates class sessions that will help people discover how easy it can be to make sustainable lasting changes in their bodies, while enhancing their ability to move with more freedom and ease.
