Katie has been drawn to movement since she was born. She came to Pilates in 2005 to find relief from the chronic injuries that plague dancers and to combat the hours of sitting she did while working towards her physics degree. After 7 years, 2000+ hours of practice, and “strong nudging” from her teachers, Katie finally entered The Fletcher Pilates® Comprehensive Program in November of 2012. She completed the program in September of 2013 and is recognized as a Qualified Fletcher Pilates® Teacher. Katie is also a member of the Pilates Method Alliance (PMA) and is recognized as a PMA-Certified Pilates Teacher (PMA®-CPT).
Katie holds a B.S. in Physics, M.Ed. in Educational Leadership, and M.S. in Kinesiology with a focus on Corrective Exercise and Orthopedic Rehabilitation (anticipated graduation May 2019). After recently becoming a mom, Katie’s passion has shifted to pre- and postnatal Pilates. The Pilates method helped her avoid the common physical ailments that accompany pregnancy and recovery, and she’s enthusiastic about sharing her knowledge with moms new and old! She is also a certified practitioner of The Center Method for Diastasis Recti Recovery and is a Pre/Postnatal Specialist, both through Carolyne Anthony and The Center for Women’s Fitness.
