“Start at the beginning, move in the direction you want to go, never get to the end…it’s about the journey” I started my yoga journey in 1998 at the YMCA in Voorhees. In 1999, my much beloved teacher, Anne Foley, asked me to place my mat next to hers in the front of the room to help demonstrate poses as she walked about the room. That began my Kripalu/Iyengar/Hatha apprenticeship from 1999-to 2002. One day she handed me a AAA-I training application, told me to sign up for teacher training! I had never expressed any desire to be a teacher, just a student. I took the training and she turned over her class to me!!! I completed my Yoga Alliance 200 hour training at Experience Yoga Studios in 2010 under Jill Blumenstock and Bobbi Johnson. The program was a rich blend of Hatha, Vinyasa and Anusara based yoga. At the same time I completed a Lakshmi Voelker Chair Yoga program at Kripalu, a workshop with Amy Ippoliti, yoga and Yoga Nidra classes with Jennifer Reis, and a one day training with Eion Finn. Continuing my journey, I began my 500 hour Yoga Teacher Training in 2017 with Jill Blumenstock. I believe yoga happens from the inside out. When we slow down, pay attention to our bodies, and listen to the message, we expand the possibilities of our mind, body and spirit awakening our own inner teacher.

Educator/National Speaker/ Published Author/ Community Outreach Project Developer/ Life Coach/ Master Reiki/Mother/Woman.
We all wear many hats in our daily lives. Mine are all the same style, "advocate" would describe them best. As an urban educator, I advocated for my students and for the empty promise of equal education in our poorest areas. As a National Speaker, I advocated for the first generation college students. When I spent my weekend mornings painting front doors in and replacing locks downtown I advocated for the forgotten parts of the community. Energy work and healing is an act of true altruism as well, an offering of myself and my abilities to help those in need. Coaching allows me the opportunity to help shift my clients’ perspective to gain a new outlook and to live authentic to themselves. Teaching others to trust their intuition and break through the fear, that is the greatest obstacle to us all, is a beautiful process.
My energy work has been something that entered my life in my thirties while healing from my own personal trauma, but has been a part of me my entire life. I hope that one day energy work and the importance of our energy fields will become mainstreamed so that all can benefit from it. I truly believe everyone has the ability to resonate on a higher plane, and find their inner peace. I welcome the emerging scientific and medical studies that question our traditional two-dimensional health treatments. I’ve learned overtime how lucky I am to possess my intuitive nature. I consider myself to be blessed enough to use it in a way that fits into my life-long mission of helping others.
