Addy is originally from Greensboro, NC and attended Appalachian State University where she met her now husband, Nate. Post grad, she moved to Charlotte, NC where she quickly found her love for sweat. While in Charlotte, she was introduced to Hilliard Studio Method (HQ) and fell in love with her yoga practice. Upon moving to Winston-Salem, Addy pursued her 200hr yoga teacher certification.
Addy had her first child, Elle, in 2022. Due to some physical limitations with her pregnancy, Addy’s passion for pilates was reignited because it was incredibly accessible and always left her feeling empowered. Post baby, a close friend shared that Hilliard Studio Method was opening in Winston-Salem! Addy knew she had to take part in sharing the Method with the community in Winston.
“My favorite thing about Hilliard is looking around the room and seeing people of all ages, stages, and seasons working & sweating together for 50 minutes. I am incredibly motivated by being in a sweaty room with others.”
When Addy isn’t teaching and hanging out at the studio, she is spending time with her husband Nate, her 8 month old Elle and her 5 year old chocolate lab, Hootie. (Named after Hootie & The Blowfish)
