    I am a breast cancer survivor and Carol has been my personal trainer for a few years. Carol has been instrumental in helping me regain the strength and flexibility in my arm after breast surgery, lymph node removal, and radiation. Since, I have always been an avid tennis player, I was concerned that breast surgery would greatly affect my abilities to return to the tennis court. With Carol’s help, I was able to return to play within months after surgery. I feel healthy and energized.
    I thank Carol for her encouragement and guidance. Her approach to fitness and health is exceptionally professional. Additionally, Carol is sincere, inspirational, and extremely caring.

    I have attended Carol's fitness classes for the past 2 years and have found them to be effective while also being fun. She has a great command of what exercises work for different muscle groups and always changes the routines so it is never boring.

    I have been taking Carol's pilate classes for several years, first,through the local Adult School and now in her home studio. Her experience, preparedness and individualization of exercise are evident in every class. I have always been most impressed by her generosity and genuine interest in each of her client's well-being and progress.
