Kelly began Pilates as a way to supplement her dance training and soon developed a desire to share it with others. She studied Dance and Communication at Hope College in Holland, MI and became Stott Pilates certified in 2004 while living in New York City. Kelly taught Pilates classes for three years before moving to Chicago and working with private clients. As an instructor, Kelly strives to help her clients build strength and body awareness that makes them feel energized and agile in their daily lives. She enjoys teaching the fundamentals to beginners, challenging experienced students to reach new levels, and working with prenatal clients. Outside the studio Kelly enjoys traveling, writing and raising her two young children.
