An on-again-off-again yoga student, Yoga truly became my passion after retiring from an exciting “career” as an amateur boxer. Needing to fill the void, initially, I used yoga as exercise…but after six months, I realized that the void ran deeper than just physical activity. My mat became my refuge. It became my sanctuary and it became, in truth, my home. Yoga became a part of me, and – in my opinion – the BEST part!
I am almost never at a loss for a smile – or words – and I love to spread my joy and encouragement to anyone I meet. I am a people collector and believe that as much as I am a teacher, I am a student first and always.
Certified in 2012, my background is in Ashtanga and power vinyasa practice. I also teach deep stretch and prenatal yoga.
A Chicago native, my husband and I relocated to Charlotte in 2011 with our two amazing pups, Gabby and Tia and live in SouthPark. When I’m not teaching or practicing yoga, you can find me in the kitchen whipping up sweet and savory treats, behind the computer creating personalized baby and wedding gifts or outside enjoying the clear Carolina blue skies!
