massage therapist & yoga teacher
I began my exploration with movement at a young age, always loving dance and gymnastics and, as the years progressed, funneling that love into yoga. I graduated from Bennington College in southern Vermont with a concentration in anthropology and a refined interest in Asian spirituality inspired by studying abroad in Nepal. After practicing yoga for many years, becoming a yoga teacher felt like a natural progression, interweaving my love of movement and spirituality. I completed my Frog Lotus Yoga Teacher Training in Costa Rica in 2012. My love of traveling and interest in meditation led me further; to study Buddhism at Kopan Monastery in Kathmandu, Nepal.
I first fell in love with massage at a 10-day Thai Yoga Massage immersion program with The Sunshine Network near Chiang Mai, Thailand. Mesmerized by the beauty of the practice, I went on to study Thai Yoga Massage with The Triple Gem School of Thai Massage and my studies with expert teacher Jennifer Yarro continue to this day.
I graduated from The East West College of The Healing Arts in Portland, OR in 2015, completing a comprehensive 800-hour massage therapy program and specializing in deep tissue massage. Soon after, I moved to Ojai, California where I sustained my own private massage practice and instructed yoga. I have taught yoga in public studios, for private individuals, and internationally for teacher training programs with Frog Lotus Yoga International.
I currently reside just outside of Montpelier, Vermont, making my way full-circle after all my travels and explorations. I can be found playing in the river or my garden with my magical daughter and loving husband.
