I began my journey into “career-dom” as a middle school language arts teacher, and served in this capacity for 10 years. Most recently, I was the middle school Language Arts teacher at The Redd School in Spring, Texas. I partnered with my fellow teachers, students and parents to help them with challenges and triumphs in and out of school. My students helped me to embrace the vivacity of youth, and live in the moment.
My journey with yoga began to blossom in 2006. I was guided to yoga by a hope to deepen my spiritual journey, find peace and happiness and connect the energies of mind, body and spirit; initially, I fell in love with the principles and sequence of the Ashtanga practice. As I have continued to grow and vary my practice, so has my understanding of yoga and how it integrates into whole-living.
In 2012 I received my 200 hour RYT from Sara Turk, focusing on Ashtanga-Vinyasa (flow) style yoga, as well as anatomy, physiology and the energetics of yoga. I continued my teacher-training journey with Sara and completed my 500 hour advanced training in 2015
Beginning to truly understand the link between subtle energy and well-being, I received my Reiki Master Practitioner training under the guidance of Jennifer Carmack, and I continue to learn and grow under her patient, partnering friendship. Furthering our journey together, I jumped in with both feet, pursuing my passion full-time at Wild Spirit Yoga.
My greatest hope is to empower­ my clients to embrace their individual strengths and realize their unique visions, thus living the life they deserve. 
I am also available as a life coach where I can partner with you to bring out your authentic truth, removing road-blocks and realizing your deepest purpose and vision.
I have learned a lot about myself over the past few years, and know that I will always seek growth, but that it isn’t always easy! The growth is in the work, and we achieve this through accountability and support… we are meant to connect, contribute and bring value to others along the way. I am learning new ways to uncover patterns and false identifications in my own life and hope to continue to partner with others to do the same.
