I’m honored to have earned my RYT-200hr certification in March 2021 through YogaPod Tucson under Shaelyn Delgado. Experiencing the breadth and depth of yoga’s eight limbs at a time when my personal road shifted from raising my children to instead catalyzing a new phase in this journey we call “life,” deepening my understanding of our energetic and physical body and its power, and primarily focusing on paying it forward.
A native of the San Francisco Bay Area, I grew up immersed in a mind-body approach, passion for nature and outdoors, and an emphasis on fresh food, healthy lifestyle and family connection. After college I spent 20+ years in Minneapolis and enjoyed fitness studios offering active aerobic workouts, playing team sports like football, floor hockey and broomball (it’s a midwest thing!), outdoor hobbies such as mountain biking, running, camping, and listening and learning from the curious and intelligent Twin Cities community. In 2015 my husband, wonderful son and daughter and I relocated to Tucson and immersed ourselves in the variety this desert community offers.
As a trained scientist with a background in molecular genetics and with an ongoing career in medical device and diagnostic marketing, I’ve observed firsthand in operating rooms and cardiac cath labs the impact that an unbalanced lifestyle creates within the body. I believe that we all have the properties within us to spark change and healing, inspired by yoga. Let’s do this fellow yogis!
