Caroline studied exercise science and psychology at UMass-Amherst. After graduation, Caroline, who is a life-long equestrian, had an opportunity to ride professionally. She also got her trainer's license and both taught riders and trained show horses. She soon realized that many of her clients were lacking in core strength and so became a certified Power Pilates instructor in order to provide a more well-rounded program for her students.
After the birth of her first daughter, Caroline stepped back from the professional horse world and focused more on Pilates and pre-and post-natal fitness. She developed an umbilical hernia and a large 8-finger diastasis after her 3rd pregnancy, which went undiagnosed by medical staff. Having knowledge of diastasis recti from her Pilates training, she realized that she had the condition but was unwilling to have surgery to correct it. Instead, Caroline looked into programs to rehabilitate diastasis recti and found the Tupler Technique®. After closing her diastasis and seeing first-hand the dramatic results that can be achieved from following the program, Caroline was inspired to become a Tupler Technique® professional in order to provide other women with the help and resources to close their diastases and rebuild their cores.
Since then, Caroline has earned numerous other certifications in order to provide her clients with the most well-rounded and comprehensive programs possible. She holds certifications in functional pelvic floor therapy, scar release therapy, and is a Tummy Team endorsed practitioner. Her most recent certification is from the Center for Pediatric Sleep Management as a Pediatric Sleep Specialist. Recognizing that many of her DR clients would come in exhausted from being up with their babies every night, Caroline decided to add "Tired as a Mother by Belly Rebuild" to encompass pediatric sleep issues and help get moms the rest they need.
When she is not in the office, she enjoys training for marathons and keeping up with her 3 active daughters, husband, and Boston Terrier, Mookie. Depending on the season, you can find them hiking, skiing, camping, or catching waves on local beaches.
Caroline is wonderful to work with!! Diastasis Recti feels like an impossible thing to fix, but I am confident this technique can absolutely work for you if you keep with it. Especially with someone like Caroline helping you through. :)
