I’ve had a camera in my hand since I was 5, been writing poetry since I was 7, and I am a classically trained singer who doesn’t sing anymore (except in the shower!). I have an awesome son, Jake and, I am married to Joseph, a badass Buddhist chaplain/meditation teacher/romantic. I am a fierce pitbull lover and our dog, Lulu, and feisty cat, Sammy, love to assist during my home practices. I have my 200-hour in Awakened Heart, Embodied Mind training a focus on trauma awareness in yoga. In that same vein, I trained with Street Yoga, Uprising Yoga, and Off the Mat. I am an Embody Love Movement Inner Beauty Shop facilitator, a Yoga and Body Image Coalition community partner, and an Accessible Yoga Ambassador - something I hold dear since being diagnosed with arthritis and fibromyalgia in 2016. Presence is more valuable to me than physical prowess —unfortunately, I had to learn the hard way.
