Originally from New Jersey, I made my way to beautiful Charleston, SC. I was a dancer and Pilates instructor and graduated with a BA in Psychology from Goucher College in Maryland. I received my Interdisciplinary Teacher Training through Nosara Yoga Institute's 200 Hour YA Teacher Training in Costa Rica, am currently enrolled in Asheville Yoga Center's Advanced 300 Hour YA Teacher Training in North Carolina. I have studied mindfulness with Mindful Schools out of California and continue to educate myself through a variety of other specialized trainings.
I teach all over and I feel it is my purpose to share this gift I have been given.
I also love being a yoga student. It makes me a better teacher, a better woman, a better wife, a better sister, daughter, friend. A better human.
I reside with my sweet husband and silly pup in Riverland Terrace on James Island. I enjoy cooking, reading, writing, the beach, the mountains, music, movies, travel and time with family and friends.

Get to know me:
DESCRIBE YOUR UNIQUE VALUE ADD AS A TEACHER. WHAT ABOUT YOUR STYLE MAKES YOU STAND OUT?
My unique value is simply that I am ME. Among all the training and the practice, I teach from my heart, my soul, my experience. My intention is to create a space with both structure and freedom, for my students to explore themselves, honor what they're feeling and make the practice their own.
TELL US ABOUT YOUR INTENTION IN BEING A PART OF THE LOCAL COLLECTIVE OF GATHERYOGA?
I believe being part of The Local Collective of Gather Yoga will enhance my interaction with other inspired and experienced teachers from near and far. Further, I look forward to creating videos and media to share and am grateful for this forum.
WHAT FIRST BROUGHT YOU TO THE MAT?
I first stepped on the mat at a time in my life when I felt disconnected. Through my practice, I connected. Body, Mind, Heart, Soul, Spirit. Over and over again, I connected. I grounded. I centered. I opened. I laughed. I cried. I strengthened. I softened. I relaxed. I was finally able to breathe. My perspective had shifted and I knew that I must share this practice and am honored to do so.
WHAT INSPIRES YOU TO TEACH?
Oh...so many things. I am inspired to explore what it means to be human. I am inspired by the inexplicable beauty of our humanness...
