“I’ve always been passionate about movement. I worked as a professional dancer for The Queensland Ballet, Opera Australia, Danse TransFormation (Montreal) and Clarence Mews (London). After receiving a scholarship, I completed a BCI (Dance) at Queensland University of Technology and a Postgraduate Diploma of Choreography at Melbourne University’s Victorian College of the Arts.
I founded Lume in 2017. The mission being to build a down-to-earth and conscious community of movers and thinkers. Movement is much more than my profession – it is a passion that has become deeply embedded in my life. In addition to my prior study, I have now completed advanced teacher training in Pilates and Yoga, and a Diploma of Clinical Pilates.
Pushed by my desire for deeper knowledge of the human body, I am currently studying Physiotherapy at UniSA, with the intent of providing better health care to help people recovering from injury, pain and chronic conditions through movement.”

“Nothing is more rewarding than helping my clients find a new experience of their bodies through movement. I have been teaching Pilates since 2016 in a variety of settings and have worked with a wide range of people of different ages, backgrounds and abilities. Pilates is a fantastic way to build the foundations of a body that moves well, feels good and is able to keep up with the demands of life – whatever they may be for the individual.
In addition to Pilates I am an Accredited Exercise Physiologist, and am currently undertaking research Honours in Pain Science. I consult at Lume and the University of South Australia, working with people with various health conditions and from different walks of life.
Seeing the people I work with engage in exercise and the positive effect this has on their health and quality of life never fails to inspire me.”
