BSN, RN, 200 RYT, Baptiste Level 1, ATNA
Astrological Sign: Gemini

Level: 1

I’ve been practicing since: 1999

I’ve been teaching yoga since: May 2016

I am inspired as a member of the EPY community by:  The students and teachers that show up to practice! There is a strong connection between students and teachers that create a community to grow in our practice together.

I’m passionate about: Living a balanced life, mentally and physically, through healthy living.

A favorite quote: “God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.”  Reinhold Niebuhr

What it means to me (the quote above): Be open to possibilities. Recognize my strengths and passions to make effective change, but be at peace when change does not happen. In those moments, bring acceptance and contentment to what is.

What you should know about me: I have practiced yoga since 1999. My initial intention was to start a yoga practice so I could stay healthy and continue to run. As my yoga practice grew, I became curious about teaching. That curiosity led me to teacher training, which led me to teach!

When I am not in the yoga studio teaching or practicing, you can find me running, playing golf, or spending time with our family of five children and five grandchildren!
