Jean is a certified personal fitness trainer, Pilates instructor and Health coach. For over 20 years, Jean has been helping people reach their goals for better fitness and health. She began her career in 1996 as a group fitness instructor and personal trainer and opened her first personal training studio in Palm Harbor in 1996. Her story began after many years of working as a personal trainer and teaching high impact exercise classes. Jean experienced a sacroiliac (SI) joint injury and low back pain and she wanted to find another fitness method that would not exacerbate her back pain and reinjure her SI Joint. Pilates started to become popular in the 90's, so Jean decided to give Pilates a try to help rehab her back pain. In 2001, Jean embarked in professional Pilates education with Stott Pilates and has been teaching Pilates ever since. Jean has continued her Pilates education with Polestar Pilates and is a comprehensively trained Polestar Pilates Instructor. Polestar Pilates is well known for being the leader in integrating Pilates with scientific research findings in the areas of orthopedics, sports medicine and movement science.
Jean's most recent interests are Pilates as a wellness practice, Pilates as fitness therapy, Pilates for women ages 50 and up, and nutrition and whole food supplementation for health and aging well.

Working with Jean is the best gift one can give herself! I am happy devotee of Jean’s Pilates and always get a fresh and challenging workout every time. M.S., Palm Harbor
I've been taking Pilates with Jean for over 2 years. I am in my late 50's and had several physical issues when I first started: osteo-arthritis in both hips and recovering from a bulging disc in my lower back. My range of motion in my hips has greatly increased and I find I'm not so stiff when I get up after sitting. I am more physically active now than when I turned 50. Jean has taught me the right exercise and nutrition I need to help me keep my pain away and continue doing for a very long time. A.S., Palm Harbor
I have been a Personal Training and Pilates Client of Jean’s for a long time and when I first started working out with Jean my spine was not very mobile and my low back was stiff and achy. I was a regular gym goer and didn't realize how much I needed Pilates! Pilates has really improved mobility in my spine and I no longer have back pain. I look forward to my private sessions every week with Jean. She always knows exactly what my body needs!
