Dawn discovered Pilates after her rehab for a herniated disc when her twins were almost two. The break from the corporate world and need for a permanent change in her exercise routine helped her realize that Pilates, nutrition, and business were even a better fit. She then focused on studying Pilates and has now created her own home studio, Pinnacle Pilates.
