I have a true passion for health and wellness.

My intention as a yoga instructor is to inspire others to live healthy and joyful lives.

My passion for athletics and wellness started at a young age. 

I was a competitive soccer player throughout adolescence and played Division I at the University of Colorado in Boulder. It was in college that I tried my first yoga class and continuously come back to the practice to this day. 

While studying in Colorado, I skied regularly and came in contact with ultra-endurance athletes. I was inspired by their mental and physical strength and completed my own Ironman triathlon in Louisville in 2010. 

Professionally, I have worked in France and Mexico in education and hospitality, Los Angeles as a stylist for a popular TV show and most recently in the corporate world as an event manager. 

When I am not practicing, teaching, coaching or training I can be found outdoors in nature or traveling the world.
