Emma was born and raised in Knoxville, TN. She grew up doing competitive gymnastics, swimming and cheerleading. When she was just 16, she found Pure Barre and loved the workout as a way to stay active and fit. Over the years, her love for Pure Barre has only grown deeper and she decided to become an instructor at the young age of 18! She is currently perusing an undergraduate degree at The University of Tennessee, so in her free time she can be found studying, hanging out with friends, or relaxing in a hot yoga class. Emma’s favorite thing about Pure Barre is that it is more than just a workout. Every time she walks in the studio doors, she leaves feeling strong, empowered, and ready to take on the world. The community at PBK is amazing and she loves the opportunity to celebrate milestones with her clients: from graduations, engagements, marriages, babies, and everything in between, she feels honored to get to share these incredible moments with her family at PBK.
