Jade was raised mostly by her grandparents who are supportive, loving and hard working people. Her grandmother worked as a nurse at a local hospital and Jade always saw her as an amazing healing woman. As a little girl she began asking her questions about how the body works and would even pull out grandma’s anatomy books with great eagerness to learn. Together they discovered Jade’s special interest which was the human body!
After graduating high school, (and completing her dream of traveling to Brazil for Capoiera), she moved to Santa Rosa to attend the Junior College to pursue a Kinesiology major and study body movement. She was introduced to Tone and like many people, quickly fell in love with Pilates. She decided to take the teacher training course offered at Tone to become a teacher, giving her a head start on the education to becoming a health worker. She is now a certified Pilates teacher, on her way to becoming a healing woman just like her grandmother. She feels fortunate to be working in a field that she is so passionate about!
