Carrie earned her certification from the prestigious Romana’s Pilates International in 2005.  Romana’s Pilates is recognized as one of the most elite Classical Pilates certifications in the world.  Carrie is a continual student of Pilates and studies with as many of her elders as she can.  Her primary mentors include: Michael Levy, Trish Garland, Cynthia Shipley, and Cynthia Lochard.  She was lucky enough to also have learn from Romana Kryzanowska herself and enjoys taking Sari’s (Romana’s daughter) weekly class via Zoom.  


Carrie is a highly sought after instructor and teaches workshops for both teachers and Pilates enthusiasts around the world. When COVID-19 forced the world into lockdown, Carrie created her Mentorship. A program specifically designed to help teachers deepen their understanding of Classical Pilates post certification. Her Mentorship has become a global success and continues to thrive.

Working hard and having fun are not mutually exclusive.
I promise both will happen every session.
