Nicole first began her journey as an athlete and lifelong lover of movement when she was a child, by devoting her time to classical ballet and modern dance. A Florida native, she attended the Pinellas County Center for the Arts High School, and continued to study professionally at Boston Conservatory on dance merit-based scholarships. It was there that she first began taking accredited Pilates, anatomy, and kinesiology courses.
After getting her Bachelor of Fine Arts, she moved to New York City, where she began dancing professionally with multiple companies. During her career, she toured nationally and internationally, traveling to such locations as Germany, France, Italy and England to perform as a member of renowned companies like Elisa Monte Dance. Throughout her performance career, Pilates had been interwoven in her training and craft. In 2009, Nicole became Power Pilates certified, furthering her advocacy of the practice.
After a decade in New York City, she moved back home to Clearwater, in 2014, and continued to teach dance and Pilates. Finding a love for the whole Pilates system, she became Balanced Body Comprehensively Certified to teach all Pilates equipment, including the reformer, Cadillac, chair and barrel. She learned how to stretch and strengthen in the rehabilitation of injuries, alleviate back pain, and help clients work to create healthier and more confident versions of themselves. Through her passion, training, and experience, she has been changing and helping bodies ever since.
