Jill Paulson

Jill is a longtime barre enthusiast and was thrilled to find The Dailey Method when she first moved to Mercer Island in 2015.  Barre Rev brings her joy; she values the strong community vibe, the top-notch instructors and the fact that the classes never seem to get easier.  

While she has lived many places (Philadelphia, Atlanta, New York, New Orleans, San Francisco, Vancouver), she's happy to now call Mercer Island home.  Jill lives on the south end of the island with her husband, their two young children, and a cockapoo named Chicken.  

When she's not at Barre Rev or parenting, Jill enjoys volunteering at the Mercer Island Thrift Shop, watching reality television and going to bed by 9pm.

Child Care

Barb
Brittany

Brittany moved to the island April 2018 with her husband and began attending Barre Rev shortly after they opened when she saw they were looking for someone to help with childcare. Brittany enjoys every class she has been to and it has been a great addition to her half marathon training.

Brittany has been working with kids since she was old enough to do so. From having a younger brother, babysitting/nannying, to working at a children’s boutique and many summer camps, to eventually graduating with a Masters degree in Family Studies. Brittany enjoys watching kids grow and learn. She worked as a social worker for two years and is now at MIYFS. I am constantly amazed by children’s abilities and resiliency. 

A Note from Brittany:

Thanks for letting me hang out with your littles on Friday mornings!

Massage Therapy

Bonnie McCaffrey
Massage Therapist

Bonnie has been practicing massage and bodywork for over 18 years. 

She brings with her a passion for assisting others to find rejuvenation and renewal amist the daily stresses of life, as well as relief from pain and dysfunction. 

She believes that consistent, regular bodywork plays a key role in maintaining health and function so that clients can enjoy life and pursue their passions without limitations.

 

Her unique blend of deeply physical Myofascial and Neuromuscular techniques combined with more gentle, intuitive modalities such as Craniosacral and Visceral Manipulation create an effective, powerful massage experience.

 

Through her many years of experience and education, she has also found that trauma held in the tissue is often at cause in chronic pain and dysfunction. Simple techniques, such as SomatoEmotional Release can relieve long-held patterns of dysfunction in an amazingly short time.

 

Bonnie enjoys being outdoors and moving whenever possible and can often be found on a trail exploring the beauty of our Pacific Northwest mountains. She also adores cooking and discovering new culinary experiences. 

 

Her sense of play and adventure is infectious and she looks forward to a new adventure here at Barre Rev in the studio revving it up with you all, and in the massage room advocating for your body's well being!

Rose Curtis
Massage Therapist

Rose Curtis is from Seattle, WA, and has been studying movement forms for the last decade. She graduated from Seattle Pacific with a degree in Exercise Science and Psychology.

 

Her background includes sports, competitive dancing, teaching dance classes, and for the last few years she has worked as a corrective exercise specialist and massage therapist. 

 

With experience working in injury rehabilitation, she constantly seeks to help people with acute and chronic injuries, and in educating clients on injury prevention, teaching exercises focused on increasing strength, mobility, or stability. She is also certified in kinesiotaping and is a certified Yoga teacher.

 

Rose offers a variety of modalities such as Swedish relaxation massage, invigorating and fast-paced sports massage, injury treatment, and myofascial techniques. Her massage style typically combines at least several of these techniques, creating an interactive experience that involves the healing properties of human movement—allowing her to work deeper, assisting in decreasing facial adhesion, and increasing joint and muscular range of motion.

 

As a massage therapist and corrective exercise specialist, and creator of Rose Curtis Movement Therapy, she has worked locally and abroad at events, including productions by the Pacific Northwest Ballet, Swim Across America fundraiser, and with many dancers and movement professionals throughout parts of the US, Mexico, Canada, Europe, India, and Brazil. Dance, travel, the outdoors, and the study of human movement are her greatest passions. She is so excited to be a part of the Barre Rev community!
