"I'm not a teacher, I'm an awakener." -Robert Frost


Have you ever felt like you were on the wrong path? That there was more to life than shoulds and expectations? I can TOTALLY relate! In 2013 I dropped out of my Master’s Program in Public History and declared that I would pursue a “yoga career” despite my family’s dismay and my own lack of experience or any clue what I was doing. This was a huge shift in coming back to my Truth with a capital T.

In 2016, my now husband and I split after 10 years together to figure out who we were as sovereign individuals- it was another awakening shift in my life that I couldn't ignore, but it ultimately was for our highest good.

Flash forward to 2018, and I am ridiculously grateful for saying yes to my-Self, creating space for my best life, and trusting in a higher power.


Since then, I’ve committed to helping women do the same through what I call the “self care lifestyle” and aligned feminine living.

I believe Self Care is so much more than a Sunday and absolutely NOT selfish. It’s about radically saying yes to you and putting your needs and desires first with the knowledge that from that full space, you have more to give.

Self Care can help you manifest your dreams, so where will it take you?

Through her passion, offerings, and fun, real-talk approach, she teaches modern women a different way of living that’s about being over doing and taking care of YOU first. No shoulding or obligations in sight. In today’s fast-paced, technology-driven, masculine energetic society, she’ll help you rewire your mindset, make self care a lifestyle and reclaim your feminine radiance.
