Brianne first started practicing Pilates in the late 1990s at the Pilates Center of the Midwest in Chicago, as a form of exercise but also to recover from two lower back injuries. At the time, she was working for Time Inc. Magazines but decided to begin the process of training to be a Pilates instructor. However, life had other plans, and over the next two decades she moved overseas, first to Hong Kong and then New Zealand, where Brianne co-founded a vineyard and winery in Hawkes Bay and later worked as a Brand Manager for Merck Animal Health. In 2016 she moved back to the United States with her husband James and two cats, George and Isabella, and settled in Marco Island, Florida.
It was here in Naples that she discovered Beyond Motion and reconnected with her ambition to become a Pilates instructor. Brianne completed BEYOND MOTION®’S comprehensive Pilates teacher training program and is passionate about her new profession.
