I have been an educator in the public school system for many years. I previously taught special education and elementary education and I’m currently an Education Specialist, mentoring teachers new to the profession. I did educational work and teacher training for a non-profit organization in Ghana, East Africa for 6 years before joining the United States Peace Corps in Uganda, East Africa for 2 years. I currently volunteer as the Uganda Project Leader with Bright Water, a non-profit organization doing clean water education initiatives.
I became a certified yoga instructor in 2016, receiving my RYT-200 with a focus in yoga for healing. I have always been interested in the spiritual aspects of yoga and I’m drawn to yoga modalities that best allow people to experience their own divinity and broaden their awareness. I began teaching meditation and mindfulness in 2016 in the yoga studio setting as well as to children in the school setting. In 2018, I completed my Kundalini Yoga teacher training. I taught Yoga Nidra and Kundalini Yoga with 21st Yoga for several years, as well as with Yoga Sunne. I began teaching Yoga Nidra, Yin Yoga, and Kundalini Yoga with a collective of yoga teachers called Mosaic Yoga in 2020. I currently teach with Mosaic Yoga as well as The Local Co-Op. I have also offered, and am currently offering, many workshops and class series on a variety of topics. I am an active learner, continuously reading many books on yoga and yogic philosophy as well as having a consistent personal yoga and mediation practice.
After many years of working with individuals in my private life, I recently began offering one-on-one sessions to the public. I bring a unique combination of spiritual gifts and experiences to assist me in intuitively guiding others to their own inner knowing and healing.
