Summer has made it her mission to train, educate and help clients improve their posture by allowing them to grow stronger through strengthening and toning their core and the posterior/backside of their body. Summer grew up in an active outdoor community in West Virginia, and was heavily involved in competitive horseback riding, tennis, dance & gymnastics. She discovered Pilates after a car accident in 2009 that left her with severe back/neck pain (bulging discs/degeneration) that was worsened by a desk job, long commuting, travel and also exercise instructors who did not advise correct modifications for chronic/reoccurring injuries. Summer has over 14 years of experience working and teaching in the healthcare industry. Her medical consultant/partner is a Board Certified NeuroRadiologist, M.D. who she consults with when building a tailored and customized plan for all of her clients. MRI’s, CT’s and X-rays can be reviewed at no charge to help start a dialog on exercise treatment plans around chronic injuries.
