my love of new ideas, adventure, creating, possibility, visioning, yoga, friends, family, connection, and community are among several reasons I am here to share and serve

this love and growth has been fueled by many things...here are a few:

  1. ongoing personal development work that keeps me curious about life, humanity, myself, and how i can best integrate the principles i'm learning to be 100% authentically me as i continue to serve my community
  2. doctor of physical therapy to include daily clinical work primarily in neuromuscular and orthopedic rehabilitation
  3. awareness that i am always learning and that everything/everyone around me has something to teach me
  4. completion of 500-hour yoga teacher training in Winter 2016 and keeping a weekly yoga class schedule to hold space with my community for whatever comes up

come. let yourself be.

I can happily say that yoga has helped me both on and off the mat. I have learned to be more present and aware, recognize patterns in my life, and truly love myself. It has essentially made me look at life in a whole new way. I feel extremely blessed to be part of such a warm and welcoming community filled with such beautiful, kind people. 

I was born and raised in Pennsylvania by a big, loving family. I have loved creating and expressing myself through art ever since I was a child. Following that passion I attended college in New York City to study studio art and art therapy. With the hustle and bustle of city life I decided to start practicing yoga to relieve some stress and anxiety and I fell in love with the way it made me feel. After college I moved to Virginia for a year, and it was there that I realized I wanted to share my love for yoga and teach others.  When I knew I was going to be moving to Fayetteville, I began researching yoga studios and teacher-training programs, I attended a class at Yoga Deza , and my gut told me it was the right fit for me. I received my 200-HR RYT in Vinyasa Flow in January 2016.
