She then became certified in 1999 at Perfectly Fit, a Classical Pilates Studio. She worked at Perfectly Fit for a few years before coming to Mind-Body Fitness Pilates Studio in 2001, and has worked here ever since! Ana also worked as a vet tech at East Valley Veterinary Clinic as well as running her own animal rescue for many years, One Dog Rescue. Mind-Body Fitness clients have adopted many of her dogs.

She was first introduced to Pilates at Studio du Corps in Costa Mesa, California in 1999 under the tutelage of Diane Diefenderfer, Barbra Bean and Rebecca Ramos. This dance-oriented studio instilled in her an importance of grace and artistry in her teaching that she extends to her clients. She was certified in 2002 and has had the opportunity to work with Master Teacher Ron Fletcher during her training. In 2007 she began learning the Gyrotonic Expansion System and Gyrokinesis with Master Teacher Barbara Schwarz. She fell in love with the system and was certified in 2009.
