I was first introduced to Pilates in 1994 when attending the Dance Medicine Symposium at The Cleveland Clinic Foundation. I became certified in STOTT Pilates in 2002.
Using Pilates as my main treatment intervention, I rehabilitated an Olympic Gymnast from a biceps' tendon rupture. With rehabilitation during the time between the Olympic Trials and the Olympic Games, he was able to join the American Olympic Gymnastic Team to represent Team USA.
My mastery is Pilates has lead me to be a guest lecturer at The Ohio State University's Physical Therapy Program for their Therapeutic Exercise Pilates Lab.
