Jessica has been a certified Pilates instructor since 2011. She always been active, dabbling in everything from tennis and ice hockey to kickboxing, yoga, and paddleboarding. She has practiced Pilates for the past 10 years, and her interest was heightened more recently as she sought to regain her core strength after childbirth. In addition to recapturing her pre-baby body, Jessica saw how Pilates improved her posture, alleviated low back pain, and even improved her skiing. A former urban planner, Jessica sought a new career that would allow her to leave corporate work behind and teach others to improve their bodies.
Jessica graduated Haverford College with a B.A. in Political Science, and she also holds a Masters in Public Administration from New York University’s Robert F. Wagner School of Public Service. Jessica received her Pilates certification from Core Pilates NYC upon graduating from a six-month intensive training program in mat and apparatus-based Classical Pilates. She completed 400 hours of apprenticeship and observation in the training program and also received her CPR certification. She taught clients at both Equinox and Reebok Sports Club NY, before moving to Westport, CT with her family in 2013.
