Kathleen graduated from East Stroudsburg University with a B.S. in Exercise Science. Her career began in Center City Philadelphia as a full time Personal Trainer and fitness instructor specializing in Pilates and yoga. In the early years you would find her zooming around the city of Philadelphia on her scooter teaching 20 classes a week and fitting in personal training clients to round out her busy schedule. After she had her daughter she didn’t slow down, but her focus changed as she immersed herself in yoga. Using her love of yoga she built a community and was connecting yoga to charitable causes that could help families in need in Philadelphia.
In 2005, circumstances brought Kathleen to Chapel Hill NC to rebuild her career from scratch leaving everything behind was both exhilarating and terrifying. It was to her good fortune that she found Empower in 2005 and has been connected to Ronda and Jessica as an instructor, personal trainer, family photographer and friend ever since. Kathleen has a lot of energy, even at 6:30am when she teaches small group classes on Tuesday and Thursday mornings. You can expect to focus on precision as she gives you the tools to have the best technique possible for you. Integrating balance and flexibility into a fun muscle building workout is her goal each class.
When Kathleen isn’t at Empower you can find her running her Wedding Photography business and spending time with her family.
