Vanessa grew up in the Twin Cities of Minnesota and moved to Austin with her husband in 2013. She grew up as a competitive figure skater. Vanessa has always looked for a method of exercise that works her body and challenges her in the same ways as figure skating used to, while also providing a sense of community. The Lagree method was it. Her passion for the Pure Pilates Studio and Lagree method naturally led her to becoming a trainer. Vanessa has found multiple benefits to this way of training and is passionate about helping others.
During her free time, Vanessa spends her time outdoors with her dog Josie, or to go out two-step dancing around Austin.
