My Background

My path to mindfulness began in Duluth at the University of Minnesota. Finding healthier ways to peace, while completing a BA in Communication and Art. Movement and nature were key tools & teachers. I feel so lucky to have discovered how yoga and meditation connect, challenge and help us grow. 


I am a qualified MBSR teacher, Level 2. Grateful for teachers over the recent years, Eve Ekman and Matthew Brensilver. I have Jack Kornfield to thank for getting over my resistance to sitting (somewhat still). I appreciate the lessons learned from Mushim at East Bay Meditation Center. I am thankful for continued learning from the teachings and teachers of MBSR & Jon Kabat-Zinn.


I have received certification at Piedmont advanced studies program & Yoga for Healthy Aging, Trauma Informed Yoga, Yoga Therapeutics & youth yoga dharma continues. Thankful for influence from Baxter Bell, Bessel van der Kolk Debbie Gilman, Rajashree Choudhury & Patricia Nolan. 


Appreciation to the students, survivors and staff of non profits whose teachings continue to connect leaders in advocacy and social justice, Malia Everette at Altruvistas, Nola Brantley and Saraí T S-Mazariegos and all who have been connected with .
