About Pat's Certifications
Pat got started in fitness years ago with the aerobics dance movement but it wasn’t until she found Pilates that she found her passion and calling. Seeing how people could realign, strengthen and lengthen their bodies, by following the principles of Pilates and choreography, set Pat on a path of trying to reach as many people as she could.
She has her Pilates Comprehensive Instructor Certification from Peak Pilates which covers training on all equipment (e.g. mat, reformer, tower, Cadillac, chair, barrel, spinal corrector, ped-o-pul, ladder barrel and more). With her American Council on Exercise Personal Trainer Certification (A.C.E.), she combines both backgrounds to bring a lot of knowledge about the body to her teaching and practice.
In August 2015, Pat completed Lolita San Miguel’s Pilates Master Mentor Teacher Training Program to become a 2nd Generation Pilates Instructor and has conducted Pilates workshops for Pilates instructors’ continuing education credits from Peak Pilates.
As of 10/27/2016, Pat passed the PMA®-Pilates Certification Exam and added PMA® Certified Pilates Teacher to her list of certifications.
As of 03/11/2018, Pat earned the certificate of "Specialist in Pilates-Based Education for Neurological Conditions" through the PMA.
Pat previously taught Pilates for the Columbia Association (MD) from 2006 thru 2020. She currently teaches in her home studio in Ocean View, Delaware. Pat maintains all of her certifications including CPR and AED training.
