About Me


For over 33 years, my clients (including Donna Karan, Laurie Anderson, and Joe Walsh) have trusted me to help them get stronger and function better, with less pain. Former Financial Times travel editor Rahul Jacob says that I'm the best Pilates teacher he's ever worked with.


My path to Pilates started when I was in pre-school, and my ballet teachers added Pilates mat exercises to our practice. Of course, I didn't know it was Pilates then!


When I was an undergraduate at SUNY Purchase, I started taking Pilates class in 1986, and loved it. The dance department had a studio that was partially funded by student government, so classes were affordable for students. I was a philosophy major and VP of Finance, and first went in to see what they were doing with their money.


In graduate school at Temple, I taught philosophy, and started teaching Pilates part time in 1989 (I was the only applicant who knew what a reformer was). It kept me sane and grounded, and helped me manage stress, and chronic pain and inflammation from severe endometriosis.


In fact, Pilates helped me get through autoimmune issues, multiple surgeries, a total abdominal hysterectomy, car and boat accidents, sciatic pain from multiple rounds of shingles, and arthritis in my hips, spine, and feet.


I understand what it's like to manage chronic pain, because I do it for myself. With modified Pilates, I'm pain-free and very functional most of the time. It always helps. Always!


My clients are continually amazed at how much they can accomplish in an online Pilates session. Time flies when you're doing exercises that work, with people you enjoy, and having a good time.


I have great sense of humor, and I bring light and levity to every client in every session. Everybody leaves feeling better than when they started.


I've had the honor of training Pilates teachers since 2000 with the PhysicalMind Institute and Real Pilates Teacher Training, and currently mentor teachers in my Pilates Teacher Mastermind®.


I've won several awards, and I've helped a lot of wonderful clients in the last 33 years. I currently specialize in Strong Bones Pilates™ - osteoporosis-safe online workouts and chronic pain management for women 50+.


I live in lower Manhattan with my husband of 30 years and our rescue dog, Juniper Peanut. In my spare time I color, knit, crochet, read fiction, and enjoy walks with Juniper.
