Jen developed her love for teaching when she began her career in early childhood education. After having children Jen became involved in the fitness industry, first training as an amateur boxer. These years included serious strength and conditioning work to improve not only her fitness and training capacity, but also her tissue toughness and resistance to injury. Along her journey she discovered Pilates and was amazed by its mindful and intelligent approach to exercise and fitness. Jen is a certified Stott Pilates® instructor.
Throughout this time and despite her fitness, Jen struggled with chronic lower back pain. After exhausting all other treatment modalities she encountered Egoscue® postural therapy for pain relief. Egoscue relieved her pain and Jen became a certified Egoscue Postural Alignment Specialist in order to help others discover their own ability to become pain free. She is eager to continue to share her love of teaching and her enthusiasm for Pilates and postural therapy with her clients.
Jen grew up in the Boston area and recently moved to sunny Naples, FL. She holds Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in Education from Lesley University in Cambridge. She has two grown sons and loves being outside to focus on her physical and emotional well being.
Jen joined Wendy Stone‘s Naples Pilates team in 2021.
