Jackie has been a student of Pilates since 2004. As a competitive springboard diver at the Collegiate & National Level, Jackie used Pilates to increase her body awareness & strength. She enjoyed how Pilates not only improved her athletic performance, but also how it helped her manage lower back pain and return to skiing after knee surgery.
Jackie is also a graduate of the University of California Irvine with a Bachelor of the Arts in Sociology, Minor in Education and Graduate Degree in Elementary Education. She relocated to the Eastern Sierra in 2014, where she met her now husband while working at a trampoline gym in Mammoth. In 2018, Jackie decided to pursue her dream of becoming a Pilates instructor and she enrolled in Jessi DeLong’s Teacher Training Program at FlowMotion Pilates.
As an athlete, coach and educator, Jackie is passionate about sharing her knowledge of Pilates and movement with others. Jackie invites you to explore how Pilates can be challenging, functional and inspiring.
