5 THINGS ABOUT JENNIFER:
WHY DID YOU CHOOSE FITNESS AS YOUR PROFESSION?
I’ve always been active throughout my life, from field sports to snowboarding. While I was in college a friend introduced me to Pilates and immediately I was hooked! It gave me flexibility, core stability, proper postural alignment and muscle balance. I became obsessed with Pilates.
WHAT HAS BEEN YOUR GREATEST INFLUENCER IN YOUR PROFESSION AND WHY?
I’ve been fortunate to have a few mentors throughout different stages of my life. Each one had the drive and the passion for what they did. They taught me to dream big, work hard and believe.
WHAT HAS BEEN YOUR MOST REWARDING EXPERIENCE?
As an instructor it’s not a single experience, it’s multiple. It makes me happy to see people connect with their bodies. It’s very rewarding to see a client learn, grow and succeed. I smile from ear to ear every time.
