200 hour Registered Yoga Teacher
I'm a nurse and a mother of 2 children and 2 pugs. I spend my free time walking, hiking, biking, or experimenting with new and exciting vegetarian recipes. I have been an avid yoga practitioner since 2008.
I stumbled upon yoga when a friend invited me to a small class and I instantly fell in love. I was the only student who came back for the second class, so I received an impromptu one on one session. The teacher was patient but was able to cue me into a Bird of Paradise posture. That was all I needed. I joined a local gym that offered yoga classes and became a regular attendee. I participated in Hatha, Gentle, and Flow yoga classes.
I have since practiced at many local studios, including Sol Yoga in Frederick, Md. and The Studio in Hagerstown, Md. I have also enjoyed non-traditional yoga classes, like Pug Yoga, Alpaca and Goat Yoga. I was able to visit the Kripalu Center in 2019 where I learned about Positional Therapy and Ayurveda. In 2020, I earned my Registered Yoga Teacher (RYT) 200 and continue to share the love I found in yoga with others. My nursing background provides the perfect foundation for a holistic approach to yoga and wellness.
I have a passion for community and will host classes for charities and fundraisers. Please reach out if your organization is in need.
