Who are you?

You are  health and wellness advocate looking to enhance your business skills or gain confidence in leadership and communication. You are feeling stuck in some capacity of your life and crave the tools to get unstuck. You are looking to establish goals and objectively collaborate with someone to create meaningful and mindful solutions and actions toward your goals.  You are inspired by yogic concepts and would like to learn how to incorporate them into your daily life. You are a strong individual that wants to enhance your way of life through mindful living, leadership skills, and personal financial and creative freedom. Let's have a conversation and dig in deep together. 

Who am I?


I began my journey into the world of health and fitness while I was working as a music theatre performer in Chicago in 2011. In pursuit of my theatrical career, I struggled to find my way in the competitive art scene and yearned for financial and creative freedom. While challenged by transition, anxiety, and multiple jobs, I decided to come back to my yoga practice to de-stress and re-evaluate. My life was immediately changed physically, professionally, and mentally. Longing for more, I enrolled in 200hr Vinyasa Teacher Training. In the following months continued my education in a variety of other certifications such as Yoga Sculpt, HOT, and Yin.

In 2012 I entered studio management in the Chicago region for Corepower Yoga. I gained invaluable skills in leadership, facilitation, management, business, and instruction. After getting married in 2014, my husband and I moved to Colorado where I continued my career in management in the Boulder region.

After 5 years of studio management, I enrolled in my professional coaching certifications through Coach Training Alliance and Yoga2Life Coaching. 

I currently teach, manage, and support operations at the Yoga Pod Westminster yoga studio, and lead numerous programs such as 200hr Vinyasa Teacher Training, podFIT Teacher Training, PodFIT Boot Camps, and Wellness programs. I take a thematic and alignment based approach to my yoga classes educating students of all level on the benefits that yoga can bring physically and mentally.

My yoga inspired mindfulness coaching offers a chance to collaborate and create better, bolder, and brighter lives professionally and personally.

When I am not teaching and coaching, you can find me spending time with my new baby girl, taking hikes, singing and playing the piano, and enjoying nerdy sci-fi novels. 

Be Bold. Be Brave. Be Bright!
