MY STORY

I first began regularly practicing yoga in 2008 to supplement my athletic training and study of modern dance, and quickly found that the meaningful movement of asana resonated within me on a deep physical and energetic level. 


The transformations yoga has brought about in my life ignited a dedication to the practice and an intention to share the many varied benefits of practicing asana with everyone.  

After teaching yoga for a few years, I began to crave more knowledge about the intricacies of the human body, and how our physical and emotional wellbeing are deeply intwined. From here, I set off on my journey towards becoming a doctor of physical therapy. Fast forward, a few more years, and here I am, a physical therapist!


I love treating a variety of conditions, from your general orthopedic issues like knee pain, low back pain, tennis elbow, and the like - to helping folks navigate through pregnancy and beyond via my work as a pelvic and perinatal specialist. I have taken many trainings after receiving my doctorate to become well-versed in treating those with pelvic floor-related conditions, and these are some of my favorite patients to work with. It's an honor and a privilege to be able to serve my community in this way, and I look forward to continuing on my journey as a healer, clinician, and forever-student.
