Formally trained as an artist, I made a career in the tattoo industry. After being introduced to yoga in 2005, I studied privately with Yogi Frank Sumner in Greensboro, NC to discover a deeper understanding. In May of 2014, after being diagnosed with METAstatic (Stage IV) Breast Cancer and recommitted my life to my practice and to the yogic lifestyle. After living for some time, and living well so far, with a terminal illness, I decided to enroll in the Yoga Teacher Training so that I could teach yoga to other cancer patients and share the benefits of the movements and of mindful meditation.

Currently leading classes and taking private students at A Hopeful Balance in New Bern, NC.
