Raised in the Northwest, Sami has been around fitness and the outdoors her entire life. From early in her childhood, Sami competed in gymnastics and cheerleading, continuing through high school and earning a scholarship to the University of Idaho. She graduated from the University of Idaho with honors and two degrees in Finance and Economics. While in undergrad she became an avid runner and has since participated in several half and full marathons. In early 2009 Sami moved to Nashville where she became a Pure Barre teacher. It was here she fell in love with the Pure Barre technique, leaving business management to teach fitness full-time. A year later she became a Master Teacher Trainer, and traveled the southeast training new Pure Barre teachers. Currently Sami owns and operates Pure Barre University Village, Pure Barre Queen Anne and Pure Barre Bellevue, and is looking to expand further. She is thrilled to be a lululemon ambassador in Bellevue!
