I have been inspired by music, movement and dance my whole life. Born and raised in the Adirondack Mountains of New York, I also have a deep connection and love for nature and Mother Earth. This deep connection and love are the foundation of my purpose and path. After I graduated high school, I drew on these inspirations to create and establish a dance school for all ages.
In 2004 I moved to Raleigh, NC with my husband and 2 children. My passion for teaching and children brought me to a position teaching creative expression classes at an organic farm in Chapel Hill, NC. I developed a program using movement, drums, music, and art to help children express their emotions and connection to the Divine wisdom we are all brought here with.
My biggest inspiration and teacher has been my 4 year old grandson who I have custody of.
Through this life-changing experience and my daily interactions with him, I have learned that Self-love and care are imperative to facilitate our well-being. I have been transformed and given a new perspective on the concept of “nurturer” and what it truly means to support versus enable.
I studied meditation, yoga and Ayurveda extensively at The Chopra Center in California. I have earned certifications as an early childhood educator (NCECC), Power of Awareness facilitator, and most recently as a “Master of Wisdom” meditation teacher.
I have always had the Wisdom Within…
I am now able to connect to, honor and embody that woman and her wisdom.
