Amy grew up being active in a plethora of sports and outdoor activities including golf, basketball, gymnastics, skiing, running and volleyball. Her passion and dedication to golf lead her to a golf scholarship at the University of Missouri – St. Louis. After suffering from a sports injury, Amy’s focus quickly turned to fitness.

In 2007 she discovered Pilates which transformed the way she viewed body movement and fitness. After her first Pilates session her approach to exercise forever changed and that motivated Amy to begin her formal Pilates training through The Core Center of St. Louis. In 2010 Amy attended her first barre class and experienced the intense burn and quick results of the low-impact workout. In 2013 Amy was certified in the barre technique through Balanced Body University. After experiencing the parallels of Pilates and Barre Amy’s love for both techniques grew beyond any other workout she had ever tried which has evolved into the unique fusion of these two workouts that has created The Pilates Barre Studio.

Amy is excited about sharing The Pilates Barre Studio with the Edwardsville community and believes that the studio environment will empower clients to reach their fullest potential.
