Ele, a native of Pensacola who grew up in Jackson, with a lifelong passion for fitness, wellness, and the great outdoors, fell in love with barre after her first class in 2013. After that first class, Ele knew then she wanted barre to be a part of her fitness routine for the rest of her life. Prior to that first barre class, her fitness routines included running, mountain biking, and group exercise classes at the Northeast Courthouse. She still enjoys mountain biking with her husband any chance she gets.
When she’s not at thebarrE, Ele is a licensed medical aesthetician at Blackledge Face Center. Ele believes good skincare and an active lifestyle are key to being healthy and youthful. Ele is a member of Briarwood Presbyterian Church, the Jackson Symphony League, and the Tri County Mountain Bike Association. She currently resides in Rankin county with her husband, Steve, and their two Golden Retrievers, #frankandbirds, and their cat, Ms. Kitty.
