Jill studied dance on scholarship at Northern Illinois University; and after graduating with a BFA in Dance Performance, Jill went on to dance with companies in Chicago and Denver – performing in North America and Europe. She was invited to teach dance at Northern Illinois University and North Central College as well.
Teaching dance opened up new ways for Jill to study, explore and analyze movement. This allowed her a greater understanding of anatomy and body mechanics, so the move to teaching Pilates was a natural progression. Jill became a STOTT PILATES® certified instructor in 2007 and immediately began teaching at the certification center in Chicago. In 2009, she received her certification in Peyow Aqua Pilates.
Later that year, Jill packed her bags and moved to Denver. She quickly built a loyal clientele by working with a variety of clients ranging from individuals requiring rehabilitation to athletes. In 2013, Jill traveled to the Merrithew Health and Fitness headquarters in Toronto, and became a CORE™ Qualified Instructor. In 2016, she became a Halo Training® Qualified Instructor. Jill became a Certified Oov instructor in 2018.
Jill has studied the body and how to move it efficiently her entire life. By focusing on postural alignment, technique and quality of movement, she creates workouts that are safe, fun and challenging for her clients. Jill is passionate about helping her clients develop strength, flexibility, mobility, body awareness and more confidence in what they can do throughout their daily lives.
In 2017, wanting to help her clients live vibrantly in all aspects of their health, Jill enrolled in the Functional Medicine Coaching Academy, and was certified in 2018. In 2020, following her passion for essential oils, she became a Wellness Advocate for doTERRA.
