About Me

Until 2002 I had a very successful career as a nurse specialising in Renal nursing. However, as a result of years of lifting heavy patients and equipment around, I suffered with chronic lower back pain which occasional left me completely immobile.

I was introduced to the wonderful world of Pilates by a very good friend who had suffered a similar fate. Wow! I loved it! Not only did it change my body shape but it well and truly sorted out my back pain.

I loved it so much I decided to train as an instructor with Body Control Pilates® and have never looked back.

As a qualified instructor I continued to develop my teaching by attending development courses run by Body Control Pilates as well as workshops in the Franklin Method under the New Pilates School amongst others.

I am a bit of a keep fit fanatic and love running, playing tennis and walking my gorgeous Goldendoodle, Mo. I particularly love nothing more than getting really muddy at my Geat Outdoor Fitness class 2 or 3 times a week!

My other love is my saxophone and play in several bands. If you would like a little glimpse into my musical life, you can look and listen here:
