A poet. A writer. A teacher of breathwork and creativity. A healer.
Using breathwork meditation, movement and creative expression I help people reignite their life force.
Through addressing personal triggers, internal stories, suppressed emotions and whatever other inner demons might be blocking them from living a more rich and fulfilling life, I support people in coming back to their truth.
The work I share, while fun, will push your capacity for growth and take you to a new level of awareness.
My own creative expression serves to fuel my personal well-being, and my desire is to inspire others to create and share themselves more fully with the world. I believe creativity provides that spark in life so many long for, and to be witnessed in these expressions is true freedom
For close to a decade, I have trained with healer David Elliott, a pioneer in the breathwork/healing space and the creator of the 5 Levels of Healer Training.
Raised in New York, I earned my Bachelor of Science in Dietetics from James Madison University in Virginia, followed by a career for several years as a fitness and wellness expert.
I currently live in Aspen, Colorado where I am able to spend time in the nature I appreciate so much. In my free time, you can find me enjoying the Rocky Mountains or spending time working on my first novel, a sci-fi fantasy romance.
