In 2012, my sister introduced me to Amazing Yoga with the promise that the practice would be a great full-body workout. As a life-long basketball player and runner, I was hesitant at first, not realizing that yoga was more than just "advanced stretching." After one practice at AY, I was hooked. I quickly realized that this yoga was powerful, athletic, and challenging - plus, calming and relaxing. Not only did I enjoy the style of practice, I found that practicing made me a stronger runner and strengthened my lower back, which has been a long-time problem spot for me.
I enjoyed the practice so much, that I completed Amazing Yoga's Teacher Training in Pittsburgh in January 2016. Shortly after that, I began teaching at the American Eagle Outfitters corporate wellness facility in the South Side. From there, I went on to join the AY community as a teacher.
I graduated from the Schreyer Honors College at Penn State University with degrees in Marketing and Women's Studies. Outside of the studio, I am the Public Programs Manager at the Heinz History Center in Pittsburgh's historic Strip District.
