She graduated from the New Zealand School of Dance and continued to dance with the Royal New Zealand Ballet for seven years.

She gained her Pilates Mat Certification in NYC and taught at various gyms and studios around Manhattan. It was during this time she experienced barre for the first time. She loved the similarities to dancing, such as the precision, poise and concentration required. And she was hooked!
