Gill has been working at Platinum Pilates since April 2017. Originally starting working on Reception, Gill undertook our Platinum Pilates Internship in the Summer 2017 and joined the teaching team in September 2017. Wanting to expand her knowledge even more, Gill completed the Polestar Comprehensive Course too. 

It took Gill a long time to realize that Pilates was something she wanted to make a career out of. Gill originally studied Science in UCD. She always had a keen interest in the body and the way in which it works but she could never quite put her finger on the way she wanted to implement that on a day to day basis.

Gill specialized in Genetics and while she found it fascinating, She couldn’t face the idea of spending the rest of her days stuck in a lab staring into a test tube.

From the ripe old age of 16, I also worked in Pharmacy as a way of getting myself through school and college. She ended up commencing her Pharmacy Dispensary Technician training in New Zealand, where she had moved in 2012. That was put on the back burner when she decided to make the big move home to Ireland in 2016.

For the first time since the age of 16 she was unemployed and needed to decide what I wanted to do. It was then she decided to put her time and effort into something she was actually passionate about, Pilates. 

When it comes to Pilates, for Gill it’s all about technique. Gill believes it’s important to focus on the basics and getting them right in the beginning. 

Away from the Studio, Gill likes to stay active and loves to Walk everywhere. Running has become somewhat of a passion again and she has signed up for a Half Marathon in Spring 2018. When not running or walking it's all about coffee with friends and red wine!
