Jennifer Mullen, BFA, comes to us with a strong background and training in dance and fitness, for over 15 years. She is a graduate from Belhaven University with a Bachelor of Fine Arts focused in Dance, and a former Trainee with Texas Ballet Theater. For years she practiced mat Pilates as part of her cross training and found great benefits from the discipline. Jennifer still finds her passion in dance, but she has always had a large heart for health, fitness, and exercise outside of the dance world. She wished she had a place like Coastline Pilates during her career, because in just the short time she has been here, Jennifer has greatly enjoyed the positive and uplifting environment, along with the vast amount of knowledge she gains every time she walks in the door. Outside of the studio, Jennifer loves spending time with her little boy, Kai, and her husband, Will. Through working as Coastline’s new studio coordinator, Jennifer hopes to be a light and a smile for all the clients and staff she comes in contact with. She also hopes to be able to share her knowledge of fitness and conditioning in the classroom soon as well.
