In 2013, Julie returned to Philadelphia, and completed Core Mat I and II Certification in Power Pilates at Urban Front Pilates. Julie teaches primarily mat classes, with a focus on creating challenging, fitness-building sequences, with a Classical foundation.
Outside of Pilates, Julie is the director of a research nonprofit at Penn School of Design. She has an undergraduate degree from Wake Forest University, and a Masters degree from the University of Pennsylvania.
As a dancer since the age of 4, she initially became interested in Pilates as a reliable cross-training practice to support her dance endeavors. Her genuine love for movement and the mind-body connection only enhanced her experiences with Pilates, both as a teacherand practitioner.
She hopes to share her practice and understanding with others who are also looking for support through cross-training.
