About

My Wellness Journey 



I took my first yoga class in 2011 and I have never looked back.  At the time, I was extremely overweight, dealing with anxiety and depression, and experiencing high levels of stress in my career as a high school administrator.  I was searching for an activity that was both physically and mentally challenging and I found that through yoga.  Through my yoga practice I developed patience, built physical and mental strength, learned how to use my breath to manage my stress, became more mindful in my daily life, and cultivated compassion for myself.   I can honestly say that yoga saved my life.  Not only did it start me on a path of healthy and mindful living, it healed me from the inside out by learning to find acceptance and peace in my life.

I began working with a health & wellness coach in 2014 to help me get to the root of why I could not consistently incorporate healthy habits into my life.  I had mild success on my own over the years with losing weight and managing my stress.  Inevitably, however, I always gained my weight back and I never really understood how all the pieces of my wellbeing fit together. Once I started working with a trained professional in the wellness industry, I finally made the lasting lifestyle changes that have led me to live a life where I now thrive instead of survive.

Professional Experience


After spending 20 years working as a high school teacher and a school administrator, I 'retired' to pursue a career in the wellness industry.  I am a 200-hour RYT  (Registered Yoga Teacher) accredited through Yoga Alliance.  I am also a Certified Health & Wellness Coach and received my training & certification from the Wellcoaches School of Health & Wellness Coaching, the gold standard in the industry.  


I instruct yoga classes at a studio in the Chicago suburbs, work with private clients in their homes, provide onsite yoga classes to corporate employees, and provide yoga lessons to school faculty and sports teams.  


My coaching work is done over a period of time so that clients learn how to make lasting behavioral changes that are sustainable and realistic.  I work with private clients individually, in group coaching class settings, and present wellness seminars and offer lunch and learn opportunities to a variety of organizations. 


My professional career experiences include working in the banking, non-profit, and the education sectors.  I have experience working with teenagers, young adults, adults, senior citizens, community groups, and for profit and non-profit professionals.  

I earned my undergraduate degree in finance from Loyola University Chicago.  I also hold a Master of Arts degree in Secondary Education and have a professional certification and license in educational leadership and administration from Roosevelt University.  My varied professional skills, expertise, and experience allow me to bring a unique perspective and  approach to working with clients so that I can differentiate instruction and coaching based on each client's needs.
