Marie discovered Pilates while studying journalism in Ottawa. After graduating, she worked as a marketing and social media manager in Montreal for several years, keeping Pilates as a hobby. In 2013, she moved to the United States and worked part time as a Pilates instructor in Stowe, VT while continuing to work in marketing. Marie has always been drawn to Pilates because of the the flow and discipline it requires. It also helped her recover from an old gymnastics injury. The impact of her study of Pilates on her personal life led her to pursue a career in the industry.
Marie is a certified STOTT PILATES Mat and Reformer instructor, a certified TRX group exercise instructor, and an AFAA-accredited personal trainer. Her deep understanding of anatomy and body mechanics helps her find the root cause of imbalances in the body, and her communication skills and fluency in both English and French help to translate her knowledge into action.
