A native Mainer, I took my first yoga class in 1998 where I was told to stay after class because I “didn’t know how to breathe.” Confused, (“Um hello, you breathe through your CHEST”) I didn’t go back again until I became pregnant with my first child in Manhattan. It was there, in a prenatal yoga series, that I began to understand where breath begins —> in the belly. Yet it  wouldn’t be until 2012 that I began to connect the dots between yoga + the impact it would have on my life, its healing energy calming my breath, body, + mind.

Under the awesome direction of Jacqui Bonwell, I completed my 200-hour training with Sacred Seeds Yoga School + am registered with the Yoga Alliance. In addition to Jacqui, I credit Cathy Wasielewski at Riverbend + also Niraj Yoga as well as all of the phenomenal teachers at Greener Postures who taught me that there is magic everywhere — one must simply open their eyes to see it.

I am also a Level 1 Reiki practitioner and proud mama bear to a 10-year old girl version of Encyclopedia Brown + a 12-year old who speaks mostly in a British accent.
