I'm a certified yoga instructor, nutritionist, and eternal optimist. I’m joyful, enthusiastic, a little nerdy, and attracted to bright colours. I love being outside in nature and my day doesn’t start until I’ve had a cup of tea. When I’m not working I can usually be found in the woods, in the kitchen developing a new recipe, or reading about nutrition and food science. I have a passion for food and healing and I can't wait to start working with you!
I studied environmental civil engineering at the University of Portland and graduated in 2013 with a Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering. In November 2015 I completed my 200hr Yoga Teacher Training through The Lotus Seed, a Yoga Alliance-certified yoga school. In September 2016 I’ll begin a course with the Academy of Culinary Nutrition and will graduate in December as a Certified Culinary Nutritionist. I’ve had a lifelong passion for learning, science, and service to others.
I’m currently working as a construction engineer, where I designed and helped implement a yoga-based injury prevention program for our craft personnel, and my past employment includes the nonprofit Advocates for Blind Children.
I am building a business with my boyfriend and partner, Dale, dedicated to holistic healing and wellness. Together we’re bringing true, lasting healing to people from all walks of life and our combined skills can address almost every concern!
What does all this mean for you? My skills, experience, and training make me uniquely able to serve you as someone who not only understands people and how to work with them, but who also has a solid foundation of evidence-based, scientific knowledge behind everything I do. I’ll be able to explain not only what, but why and how. A foundation of knowledge and understanding is the key to creating permanent change. I empower my clients to learn about their bodies and how they work, so they are able to learn intuitively how best to care for themselves. When you work with me, you will get a teacher and cheerleader who is passionate and enthusiastic and who will give you the latest and greatest in terms of scientific understanding and proven techniques. Are you ready to start living the life of your dreams? Give me a call today and let’s get started!
