I was born in Boulder Colorado and grew up in Phoenix Arizona. I graduated from Arizona State University with a degree in Family and Human Development. I have a strong background in sports and coaching. Growing up I loved all sports, I spent most of my time playing competative softball, soccer, and volleyball. After college, I coached high school softball and managed a children’s swim school for 13 years.
I first fell in love with yoga about 6 years ago on a 5 day canoeing yoga retreat with my mother, I have continued to practice since. Yoga is an awesome full body work out, and it has made a difference in the other sports and activities in my life. Yoga brings balance to my body, mind, and life in general.
I just moved to Texas in September of 2014 with my husband Johnny, and two dogs Tank and Buddy. This provided the perfect opportunity for a career change and allowed me to complete my 200 RYT certification. Teaching Yoga has given me a chance to inspire others and combine my coaching skills and love of yoga and fitness. I have a passion for educating and challenging myself and others, in a positive, patient, and calm manor.
