What type(s) of holistic medicine or wellness have you studied and what do you specialize in?
Yoga & Ayurveda
Tell us a little about you. What’s your backstory, and how did you get into holistic wellness?
I studied journalism and creative writing in college, and soon after graduating I was having a hard time writing about school board meetings and library toilets overflowing (true story) when I was eager to do something more impactful, so I quit and did Americorps NCCC, a 10-month domestic volunteering program.
Here, I would teach my team yoga, and decided to become an official yoga teacher after. The deeper reasoning for this path came right before my training when I was diagnosed with depression.
It was through going deeper on the yogic path that I discovered Ayurveda, and it changed my life in learning how to take care of my physical, mental and emotional body through this time tested wisdom.
What’s your preferred style of work?
I love to create courses for group programs, workshops, and 1:1 mentorships.
What is something you’re most proud of in your work?
I’m proud of my authenticity and continuing to be a student.
Where do you get most of your health info from (outside of your traditional study). Are there any podcasts you love, books you’d recommend, or newsletters you enjoy getting?
Where do you meet most of your clients?
If you could give one piece of advice to a new holistic practitioner, what would it be?
Create a sustainable path sharing what excites you, and do your best not to compare it to what others are doing. No one is you and that is your gift.
Where can people find you?
