Sherrese has a background in dance and weight training, and fell in love with Pilates because it offers aspects of both. She danced as a child, through high school, and for two years at Santa Rosa Junior College.

She acquired her Group Fitness certification in 2003, while she was pregnant with her third child. She has worked at several fitness facilities in Sonoma County as a Personal Trainer and Pilates Teacher, as well as in administration. She’s happy to be living her dream of following in her parents’ footsteps by being an entrepreneur.
