Michele began her career as an attorney at a large firm in Washington, DC and later continued her practice serving as General Counsel for a government contracting firm in Northern Virginia. Michele was always active, but she became more in touch with the need to become both physically and spiritually strong after the birth of her two children. Michele began to train for and participate in triathlons as a way to regain control of her physical strength and well being after pregnancy and became particularly fond of pilates reformer. Michele transitioned from her legal practice to the fitness industry in 2013 when she began teaching group fitness classes. Michele is certified or licensed in Zumba, Tabata Bootcamp, Pilates Reformer, Pilates Mat, Barre, Silver and Fit, TRX and general group fitness, and is also a certified personal trainer. While teaching at a local pilates studio, Michele began to regularly practice yoga, eventually becoming a certified RYT200 practitioner. Noticing both the physical and spiritual benefits of yoga, Michele began to explore energy healing and meditation. Michele went on to become a Master Reiki Healer. When not on her mat or teaching a group fitness class, you can find Michele on her road bike, running the trails of the local State Forest, or swimming in the lakes near her home. Michele and her husband Peter live in New Jersey with their two children – son Luke and daughter Emersyn and dog Winslow.
