Jen's journey into Pilates started when she was in college studying dance at San Francisco State University. A back injury was causing chronic pain, and serendipity allowed Jen to become introduced to Pilates through two of her college professors who were also Pilates instructors. When she saw the benefits of Pilates, Jen was hooked, and signed up to become certified. Her first certification was through Ellie Herman, the author of "Pilates for Dummies". Jen went on to teach Pilates for several years in San Francisco and Oakland. She also taught for a couple of years in Maryland and Washington D.C.
