Jennifer has over 20 years of experience in the mind/body field. She started her formal Pilates training in Los Angeles at Performing Arts Physical Therapy under the direction of Melinda Bryan (certified and ordained by 1st generation Pilates Master Romana Kryzanowska). Jennifer’s training during these years included workshops, testing and continuing education seminars with Romana Kryzanowska as well as other Classical Pilates greats like Siri Darma, Jillian Hessel and Jay Grimes. Jennifer taught with Jay Grimes at PAPT for 2 years and took over his clientele when he
left which was a very high honor for such a young teacher.
Jennifer was very grateful for excellent training and the roots in Classical Pilates but knew there was more to discover. She completed two more Comprehensive Professional Pilates Certifications. The first was with PhysicalMind Institute where she had the honor of studying with renowned movement therapist Marika Molnar.
Next Jennifer went study with Marie Jose Blom at Long Beach Dance Conditioning. This experience would prove to be a life changing experience and Marie Jose continues to mentor and inspire Jennifer’s work to this day.
Jennifer has been holding teacher-training courses in her own Fusion Pilates Pre & Post Natal Specialist program across the US and in Japan since 2003. She is the owner and director of Fusion Pilates DVD’s, which specialize in DVD programs for women’s fitness. Jennifer released two new DVD’s created for the Pilates Professional in 2009. These programs include Pre & Post Natal modifications for the Reformer, the Wunda Chair and the Cadillac.
Jennifer began conducting a Comprehensive Professional Pilates Program in 2007 with courses offered in Asheville, Charlotte and Raleigh, North Carolina.
