Merilee, originally from Seattle, WA, moved to San Diego after graduating from Seattle University with a degree in Marketing. After years of gazing down at the computer, stress and fatigue she started to develop lower back issues. A friend took her to a Pilates class and she was hooked instantly. Her pain started disappearing and soon it was gone completely. Pilates had changed Merilee’s life, and she knew that she had to use the energy she got from her new practice to help other people suffering as well.
Merilee has been working as an instructor at the Pilates Room since January of 2017. In January 2019, she received STOTT Pilates Recognition of Certification for Matwork & Reformer. She currently taking the required continuing education courses annually to maintain this certification.
