I grew up in San Diego, CA with a passion for dance and movement. After a successful stint in Tinsel Town, I was honored to be in movies such as The Big Lebowski and performed in live industrials for companies such as Tiffany and Co. In 2001, I graduated from Chapman University with studies in English and Dance, furthering my education and love for kinesiology, biomechanics, writing, and traveling the world.
I was first exposed to Pilates as a last resort of rehabilitating a chronic hip injury during my dancing career in Los Angeles. Twelve years later I am still amazed and humbled by the benefits Pilates has had on my body. In 2004, I was certified through Body Arts and Science International and took my practice into a teaching career under the guidance of Rael Isocowitz, MA. Three years later I fell in love with my Power Pilates family, found my “home” and completed the Bridge Comprehensive Program, soon after becoming a Teacher Trainer for Orange County. I am currently a Teacher Trainer for Power Pilates, New York and I teach Certification Courses as well as Continuing Education throughout the West Coast Region.
I reside in Costa Mesa, CA and train clients throughout Orange County, including the two OC Power Pilates Studios as well as private in-home clients. I have served as an Ambassador for Lulu Lemon in Newport Beach, and I am a certified member of Pilates Method Alliance. I live in a Mid-Century Modern bungalow with one of the great loves of my life, my English Bulldog, Matilda. I incorporate a love for nutrition, yoga, friends, art, writing and travel into my teaching and lifestyle . . .”To love what you do and to live with purpose? It doesn’t get better than that.” ☺

"I met Katherine in 2009, when she began training me privately. I then enrolled in the Power Pilates certification program which she co-directed with Lisamay Scott at the House of Pilates. In addition to my evolving self-practice, I continue to train with her privately and take group classes led by her. She is smart and innovative with an INCREDIBLE energy. I don't regret a moment I've spent with her. She'll kick your ass and enhance your self-confidence at the same time. I've worked many, many instructors and she is absolutely the best. In fact, I recommended her to my younger sister, who trained at the Royal Ballet School of London, and she now trains privately with Katherine as well. She is definitely the highest quality instructor that I've been honored to work with.

"Katherine has a true passion for Pilates, health, and life - and it shows in her teaching. I believe one of the best qualities that she has is that she is constantly learning, taking sessions from master teachers, and enhancing her teaching and knowledge with continuing education. This allows her to better herself and in turn help her better her clients. I would highly recommend Katherine to anyone interested in learning how Pilates can change his or her life and body!"
