I am a Pilates specialist instructor and I absolutely love what I get to do. I have a niche for strengthening biomechanics and progressing clients through challenging phases of meticulously programmed workouts! Whether it's post-rehab training or challenging the most elite athletes - I have the workout for you!
I love the beautiful intricacies of the way our bodies were designed to work. I have found that Pilates and holistic health truly care for this design and enable you as a WHOLE-PERSON to flourish.
I love seeing the difference people feel through my Pilates training and health coaching.
Come move better and feel better with me!
Your health affects your life and your life affects your health.
I have danced since the age of 3 and went to the University of Oklahoma to receive my Bachelor of Fine Arts in Ballet Pedagogy.
I owned a Pilates studio in Texas for 5 years before moving to Oklahoma. After 2 years of owning a brick & mortar studio in Oklahoma during the Covid pandemic, I saw that I could help so many more people by offering challenging and efficient Virtual Workout Programs and Courses. I am excited to have you train with Olive Tree wherever you live in the world!
I am married to Tyler (a wonderful man and pastor whom I have had the joy of walking alongside since 2006) and I homeschool our two daughters, Kate (11) and Madelyn (8). These 3 are my greatest gifts! We have walked through some difficult and heavy seasons in life that have spurred me on in what I now teach and encourage in my health coaching.
My training matters
because YOURS matters.
Besides the benefit my ballet training gives to my workouts, I was certified through STOTT Pilates, an elite Pilates program, and have been teaching Pilates since 2009. I have completed intense training in Mat Pilates, Reformer, Cadillac, Chair and Barrels. I have also completed specialty training for injuries and special populations including osteoporosis, scoliosis, osteoarthritis, disc herniation, knee, ankle, hip and shoulder injuries as well as prenatal Pilates. I have also enjoyed my training in fascial movement, Pilates for men, athletic conditioning, golf conditioning, and props including: cardio tramp, mini-stability ball, BOSU, Pilates edge, medicine ball, stability barrel, trigger point, TRX Suspension Trainer and barre.
Additionally, I have been certified through NASM as a personal trainer and certified through PBT (Progressing Ballet Technique) to further dancer's conditioning and performance.
I am a certified Biblical counselor, have done Vagus Nerve Training with Dr. Perry Nickelston with Stop Chasing Pain, and also recently started working towards my Integrative Health Practitioner certification. I am looking forward to helping even more clients through root-cause, holistic health coaching.
I take my training and understanding of the body (and mind and soul) seriously because I value each and every one of my clients. You only have one body - let's take care of it well!
I would love to work with you.
It is an honor and joy that I get to be a small (or big!) part in people's lives as they trust me to walk with them in stewarding their health.
Whether you join one of my workout programs or you're looking for some health coaching (or both!)...I am grateful for each of my clients and would be honored to have you work with me.Steward your Health with Me!
