I am the owner and principal teacher at Precision Pilates, Spokane’s oldest and best Pilates Studio. We are devoted solely to teaching the discipline of Pilates. My staff and I at Precision are committed to teaching all levels of Pilates work to all levels of clients. I am deeply devoted to structuring the work for the benefit of each client and working with them in a positive, professional environment that allows the individual client to increase the potential of their body and the benefits of the work.
Our Studio, Precision Pilates, is located in a beautiful light-filled studio and includes a 2,000-sq. ft. mat room, a large reformer room and a state of the art cardio room that includes an elliptical machine, recumbent and spin bikes, along with private changing rooms and shower facilities. We also feature a full retail area where you can buy fitness apparel suitable for Pilates and boutique items that you can enjoy outside of the Studio.
I have owned and operated Precision Pilates in Spokane since 2004. During that time, I have conducted thousands and thousands of private, semi-private and group classes for a wide variety of students. I have been told that because of our passion, our professionalism and out results, Precision has come to mean Pilates in Spokane.
I am certified as a Pilates Master, Second Generation Pilates Teacher. I earned that honor after completing a 24-month course in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida with Lolita San Miguel, a First-Generation Pilates Master. I earned my original Pilates Teaching Certification in 2004 from Elizabeth Jones-Boswell B.S. M.Ed. after completing her 18-month mat and reformer intensive teacher training program followed by 18 months of auxiliary equipment training. I am a member of the Pilates Member Alliance and certified to teach Lolita San Miguel’s Teacher Training Program, Lolita’s Legacy™, and while offering the program here at Precision Pilates annually, I often travel to teach and support the program at Lolita’s Studio in Florida and around the country.
My background includes over 10 years as a premiere athlete. I competed nationally and internationally representing the United States in my sport, Synchronized Swimming. I have had a lifelong commitment to fitness and wellness.
I am deeply committed to the work of Pilates and I pursue additional training and professional enrichment whenever the opportunity arises. My intention is to grow not only our studio but the experience of Pilates throughout my community, country and world.
Second Generation Pilates Teacher
Lolita’s Legacy Educator
I came to Pilates naturally, my mother Amber made me do it and now I love teaching it. I come from a very athletic background and have long enjoyed playing club and school soccer, skiing, running and all things fitness. Pilates has allowed me to bring all of my passions together, stay fit and share it all with my students.
I am certified through the Lolita’s Legacy Teaching Program and while there is much that I do that I enjoy, at the top of that list is my work with my students here at Precision Pilates.
Lolita’s Legacy Certified
I have had a lifelong love of fitness and movement and hold national titles in dance and cheerleading. With my background in dance, Pilates was intuitive and in sync with my personal style of exercise. I love the mind-body connection associated with Pilates and I enjoy sharing that experience with others in an upbeat and welcoming atmosphere. I’m passionate about helping others develop optimal health and vitality for a lifetime of movement with ease.
I have a Bachelor’s degree in Finance and Economics from University of South Florida and a Master’s degree in Business Administration from Eastern Washington University. I completed the comprehensive Pilates instructor training program through Lolita’s Legacy Teacher training program in 2016.
When I’m not changing lives in the studio I enjoy traveling the world, running, cycling, rowing, skiing, hiking and spending time with my family and friends.

I have had a lifetime interest in fitness and a healthy lifestyle. After college, I enjoyed aerobics and cycling in the Seattle area. My family moved to Spokane in 2000, and after my third son, I found challenge and enjoyment in running and completed several half marathons in the PNW. But I was looking for something to improve my core strength and assist with back and shoulder pain. In 2013, I found Amber at Precision Pilates and fell in love with the Pilates work. I feel like Pilates is a “lifetime” exercise that can meet many needs, and challenge people at whatever fitness level they are currently in. I have a small degree of scoliosis and have found great relief in back and shoulder pain since attending Pilates classes. In 2015, I completed the Lolita’s Legacy Comprehensive Pilates Teacher Training program under Amber’s instruction. I absolutely love doing and teaching Pilates! I am also an IT Project Manager and enjoy spending my time, outside of work and Pilates, volunteering at school and church and being with my family at home and at the lake.

I have been involved in fitness my entire life, as a participant, a competitor and an instructor. I found my true passion, spinning, about 20 years ago and continue to be absolutely obsessed with it and have been teaching for about 18 years. Spinning is unique in that it is something that everyone can do, at the level that works for them. It’s a great way to improve your fitness and I aspire to make every class fun and challenging for each person. I want everyone to leave a class knowing they have accomplished something awesome for that day!
I have been certified in two styles of spinning, and when possible, I enjoy taking classes from other instructors to bring new ideas to my classes. I constantly take online continuing education classes in spinning. My goal is to continue to share my love of spinning with anyone who wants to join the fun!
