It’s been a few days since I wrote anything because I’ve been going through a huge career change. I left my job in the biotech world to become the General Manager of the very first Club Pilates location in North Carolina! This kind of came about in a serendipitous way and at a great time career-wise for me… so I’m going for it! I’m ready to make this Club Pilates location THRIVE, and bring the amazing health benefits of Pilates to the masses. More to come in a later blog, as I’m in the airport on my phone typing this right now. Here are a few pics of my trip this week to GM training in Costa Mesa, California below. Sadly, it was raining a lot and very chilly. I brought the NC winter weather with me apparently!

Check out my Instagram for more travel pics and healthy living advice!Day 9 - Exploring #Phoenix and the #ApacheTrailScenicByway. Finally got to see a saguaro up close. :). #10yearanniversary #2yearsmarried #seguaro 🌵#roadtripusa #arizona #canyonlakeDay 8 - A few more pics of the Sinagua cliff pueblos (there were a TON) and then we stopped by #MontezumaCastle, which is an incredible engineering feat and housed around 35 people, they think. The last pic is of “Castle A”, which they think was even larger than Montezuma Castle. It’s hard to believe hundreds of people lived in these amazing structures built into the rocks, and their ingenuity, creativity, and the harmonious way they worked with their environment is truly humbling to see standing - 1000 years later. 😳 We spent the rest of the day exploring the state, and I REALLY loved #JeromeArizona and driving through switchback roads up and down the mountains and canyons, all the way to Phoenix. #montezumacastlenationalmonument #nationalparks #pueblos #arizona #walnutcanyonDay 8 - Can you spot the cliff side dwellings? We visited Walnut Canyon which has a nice little paved hike through the canyon down to some ancient Sinagua cliff pueblos from around 1100 C.E. You couldn’t even see the bottom of the canyon in several places, and there were tons of lizards and cactuses. 🌵:D It was only a little trek down and then back up 220+ stairs 😜 #walnutcanyon #walnutcanyonnationalmonument #hikingadventures #sinagua #nativeamericanhistory #arizona #10yearanniversary #2yearsmarried #lizardsrock #cactusesrock #geologyrocksHelicopters 🚁 and canyons #grandcanyon #papillonhelicopters #southrimDay 7 - A few more shots of the amazing rocks around Sedona from atop Submarine Rock. And some pics of the coolest restaurant ever, Mariposa. Incredible food, amazing views, and really interesting decor. The front door was made of semi-precious stones like quartz, moonstone, and hematite in the shape of a butterfly. The owner, Lisa Dahl, has been on Food Network and the Travel Channel and owns four restaurants in the Sedona area. Freaking delicious!! #sedona #mariposasedona #lisadahl #submarinerock #brokenarrowtrailDay 7 - Tim picked me a little flower and we built some rock cairns on the trail. We hiked out to Submarine Rock and saw some cool views of the rocks surrounding the town. #sedona #hikingadventures #courthouserock #bellrock #rectortrail #arizona #brokenarrowtrail #submarinerock #10yearanniversary #2yearsmarried
