I’ve smashed through my share of barriers.
I’m the founder of Barre & Soul, a barre and yoga studio with 5 locations in the Boston area. I'm also a mom, a writer, a feminist and an entertainer at heart.
I began practicing barre in 2006, while pregnant with my second child. Less than a year after giving birth and despite being in the midst of a difficult divorce, I was in the best shape of my life – physically, mentally and spiritually. I had finally begun living in my body.
Today, I work to help empower women to live healthy, passionate and joyful lives. I teach classes and workshops, and I write and speak about gender equality and women's issues that have affected me deeply, like domestic violence.
Cred? I've got cred.
I hold a B.A. in Women’s Studies from Lesley University.
I've been teaching Barre for over 10 years, and learned from the best in the business, the former managers of the original Lotte Berk Method. I've also completed my 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training, and I’ve taught thousands of group classes since 2007. I've even trained in Circus Yoga, Aerial Yoga and performed as part of a circus burlesque troupe.
I've gained wisdom through my own challenging life experiences – teenage parenthood, domestic violence, and divorce.
And in just 4 years, I've grown Barre & Soul into a $1.5 million business with a fiercely devoted following.
