I was born in Washington, DC, and attended Foxcroft School for Girls in Middleburg, Virginia. Before earning my undergraduate degree in English from Fort Lewis College, I taught outdoor education, worked on organic farms, and traveled – as well as completing programs in therapeutic massage, Reiki, and courses with the National Outdoor Leadership School (NOLS).  My yoga practice began in 2002 while I was a seva student at the Kripalu Center for Yoga and Health in Lenox, Massachusetts. In 2015, I graduated from the Yoga Teacher Training program at Old Town Yoga Studio. I offer studio and on-site yoga classes in Fort Collins, Colorado, where I live with my husband, daughter, and dog.
