Ali grew up in Tucson, Arizona where she spent most of her childhood dancing. She continued her love for dance by getting a Bachelor's Degree in Fine Arts and dance from the University of Arizona. Her love for movement eventually grew into a love of fitness, which eventually grew into a love for teaching barre. Ali's recent move to Berthoud brought her back to Pure Barre Fort Collins in 2021 and she couldn't be happier. Her passions include empowering women through fitness and movement and improving systems and processes in organizations.
When not at the barre, Ali works for CU Boulder as a Project Coordinator (even though her second Bachelor's Degree in Science and project management was from CSU). Ali also enjoys spending time with her boyfriend, Tanner, two mini Aussies (Macklin and Winnie), and two cats (Bear and Dewey).
