Directionless, overweight, and desperate for answers, I left my job and moved across the country, circumstances eventually landing me in a small mind-body fitness studio in Boulder, Colorado. After an hour of awkwardly flailing my limbs about in a sweat-soaked stupor, I inadvertently discovered what would become my lifelong career path & calling: Movement.
For the next few years, I trained extensively as a somatic educator and began teaching classes up & down the west coast - working as a freelance editor on the side. In 2005, I moved to Portland to become a Nia™ Black Belt and the Senior Editor of Educational Materials at Nia Technique, Inc.; soon after also helping to co-create a teacher training curriculum for HoopGirl, Inc., a premier mind-body hoopdance company servicing clients worldwide.
In 2006, countless hours spent as a workshop facilitator revealed a knack for women's empowerment and I expanded my offerings. Working as a life coach gave me an opportunity to bring my therapeutic aspirations alive through a results-oriented approach to facilitating movement in all areas of life.
1:1 coaching is a unique blend of depth therapy, somatic awareness, and proven techniques that create change through me-too moments & shared laughter.
My "ask-me-anything approach" offers clients a refreshing and transparent alliance where mentorship & intimacy develop, and results become the norm.
