I have a serious thing for salty water. When I discovered the practice of floating, I immediately recognized how well it complemented other supportive practices and therapeutic modalities. For the last 2 and-a-half decades, I have studied, practiced, and trained extensively with world-renowned teachers in yoga and functional movement, Western and East Asian bodywork, and meditation/mindfulness coaching. 


The breadth and depth of my studies allow me to curate the most powerful adaptations of these practices to help reduce and often eliminate pain conditions, restore functional mobility, reduce stress, and improve mental wellness.

I care deeply about empowering my clients to take charge of their own well-being and strive to introduce them to a variety of tools for self care. My education and background enables me to make these practices accessible as a teacher. I earned a bachelor’s degree from the University of Illinois and a master’s in education from Northwestern University, working for many years as a high school teacher and e-learning specialist. I received the first of several yoga teaching certifications in 2003; in 2019 I completed the CTB Practitioner at Coaching the Body Institute and in 2022 I graduated from Pacific College of Health and Sciences, earning my LMT.


I'm always happy to connect to learn more about how I can help you feel better.
