I just hit 42 and am mother of two amazing children and wife to the most supportive and loving husband. And I strongly believe if you follow your passion you will end up in the place you are meant to be. I grew up playing competitive sports all my life, soccer, track and gymnastics. I have an intense passion for fitness, how the body works, educating and nutrition. Prior to The Dailey Method, I was a Bikram Yoga instructor for 7 years. I enjoyed teaching Bikram but I was looking for more of a challenge mentally. I was introduced to The Dailey Method and fell in LOVE after first my class. Only one problem, there was no Dailey Method in San Diego. This began my quest to bring TDM to San Diego. Two years later in 2011, my dream came true. This class challenges me mentally on a “Dailey” basis and physically every time I take it. I get so much joy watching my client’s bodies and mental health transform before my eyes—it is all very fulfilling.

I have always been active, just not a lover of actually going into a gym and exercising. I was a swimmer and have been an avid surfer since the age of 19. Once I reached my mid-30’s, trying to balance family life meant less days in the water. I knew at that point just surfing alone wasn’t going to keep me in shape. I was originally introduced to another barre class by Shelie Herman and was instantly hooked. I loved how my body changed and how it had a positive impact on my surfing. I found it was this form of disciplined exercise that helped me mentally get through a challenging period of my life. I graduated with a BA in English from UCSB and my career was spent primarily with a multi-billion dollar investment management firm, which I left in 2008 to raise my daughter, the best decision of my life. I feel so fortunate to have met such amazing people through TDM since we opened in 2011. It’s such an honor to come to the studio and hear and see stories of success. I am constantly inspired with the students’ determination in class and I feel honored to be a part of the changes I see in their bodies and minds.
