Originally from New York, Kelly lives in Woodbridge, Suffolk with her husband and two children. She is a fully-trained Pilates instructor, both on equipment and in mat-work. Passionate about the discipline, she experienced its transformative benefits to the body and wellbeing first-hand after a lower back injury forced her to take time out from a successful career in musical and improvised theatre. A friend suggested she tried Pilates, and she fell instantly in love with its likeness to ballet and body work. Regular classes helped her recover fully from her injury, and Kelly found a calling to help others so she trained as a Pilates instructor in Los Angeles, California. Kelly became a go-to instructor for Hollywood stars and sporting elite in New York, known for her focused yet relaxed teaching style.
