It’s said that an opal stone returns to you the energy that you put into it.
Opal Wellness Studio was founded on this belief - that when we nurture our wellbeing, we are better able to care for the people and the world around us.
I'm a certified Pilates instructor and wellness coach, and the busy mom to three even busier boys and one cute, yet mischievous pup.
I know how chaotic life can be. As a lifelong dancer and dance educator, I found and fell in love with Pilates while looking to regain some of myself that I had lost to new motherhood.
My own holistic wellness journey ignited in me a desire to help others strive to become their happiest, strongest and most confident selves, too. Through Opal Wellness Studio, I serve clients in virtual and in person Pilates class instruction, wellness coaching, and personalized nutritional guidance.
I received my comprehensive Pilates training and teaching certification through Power Pilates and the Pilates Method Alliance, and hold degrees in nutrition, dance and education from Rutgers University.
I'm also a lifelong learner, continuously honing my skills and gaining new knowledge by participating in Pilates conferences and through specialized courses, Holistic Health Coaching through the Institute for Integrative Nutrition, Injury modification, prenatal and postnatal Pilates, Pilates for breast cancer, and Pilates for children, to name a few.
