I love learning and am a student of life and many teachers and practices.
I draw on many experiences from 15 years in Corporate America, teaching trauma-informed and community-based yoga, Sacred Intimacy study and professional practice and a lifetime of being wild and connected to the earth.
Recently, my education is focused on apprenticeships with individual teachers who are well steeped in their practices. My degrees are both in Cultural Psychology, with my Bachelor’s degree via Saginaw Valley State University and my Master’s degree via The University of Chicago.
I have studied with these amazing people.
