Graduated from Saginaw Valley State University in 2004 with a Bachelor degree in Business Management. As a means to earn some extra money while attending college, she became certified in Group Fitness, teaching a variety of classes but never quite feeling like she found exactly what she was looking for. She found a local Pilates studio in her home town and after her first class she felt amazing. Ann Marie pursued Pilates training under Jennifer Kries and Studio Surge in Birmingham, MI and has taught and continues to teach Pilates now for the past 15 years!!
