About Me

I was born on the shoreline of Connecticut USA, on a Wednesday just after midnight.

I have always been a seeker. Searching within as well as looking to different environments and to surround myself with eclectic people.

My passion for travel was sparked when I went on a 10 day trip to Italy with my high school Latin class. I was amazed that their were worlds, history, and beauty outside of the small bubble where I grew up.

I decided to pursue an undergraduate degree in Writing at the University of Tampa. I had been writing short stories, poetry, and writing in a journal since I was 11 years old.

I began practicing yoga when I was 19 years old.

I had lost myself to an abusive relationship. My friends at school encouraged me to take the free yoga classes offered at our university. I grew up without any sort of religious or spiritual influence in my household, so this is where my spiritual path took its first step. I learned how to connect with my body and feel my intuition through yoga. I began taking more Philosophy classes at my university and eventually minored in Asian Studies.

Some friends and friends of friends knew how passionate I was about yoga that they would ask me to lead them through a flow in the park. I was uncomfortable taking a leadership position at first.

In the summer of 2013, I traveled to Ghana to teach Pre-Natal Yoga at a rural hospital named Kongo Clinic.

I finished my degree in Auckland, New Zealand and have been traveling since. I travel through volunteer opportunities, work exchanges, and have even taught english abroad. Today, I am a full-time traveling yoga teacher. I also read tarot cards for fun. My other passions are writing and hula-hooping.
