I started my yoga journey after the death of my father. I quickly discovered It helped me process my feelings and I began attending classes regularly. I then began learning about using other yogic principles, including pranayama and meditation. 

After a yoga retreat I attended in Italy, I realized I needed and wanted to learn more about yoga and how to help my clients heal with their own yoga practice. After completing my first yoga teacher training in 2016 under Isabelle Casey of Sana Yoga School, I then completed 20 hours of Yin Teacher Training under Douglas Johnson of the Mahapatha Yoga School. I completed the 500 hour Advanced Yogic Studies in 2021  with Asheville Yoga Center where my studies focused on therapeutic yoga and mental health in yoga. 

 I am also certified as a Rad Roller Yoga Instructor in Myofacial Release. 

Teaching yoga brought me the opportunity to co-teach a 50-hour Yin Yoga Teacher Training in Mandrem, India at the Preksha Yoga Ashram under the direction of Yogi Madhav in 2017.  I am the co-founder and co-leader of Nourish Yourself Mind and Body Yoga Retreats which holds 1-2 retreats yearly.
