Originally not an exercise enthusiast, Kerri came to Pilates by chance. When a friend offered to teach her at his studio, she quickly fell in love with the method. Chronic pain in her back and shoulders was greatly reduced, making profound a difference in her body. Deciding to further pursue Pilates, she apprenticed in the Classical Method, learning exercises and choreography in both mat and apparatus work. It was during this time Kerri met her mentor, Maria Curti. Kerri has been teaching private sessions and group classes since 2004. In Fall 2007, she expanded her practice by opening a home studio in Downtown Los Angeles. She continues to study and teach with Maria at Purely Pilates on Larchmont Blvd.
