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 core and lower back, which have been a long-time problem spots for me.
I enjoyed the practice so much, that I completed Amazing Yoga's Teacher Training in Pittsburgh in January 2016. After two years of teaching at AY community as a teacher, I completed my Level 2 Teacher Training with AY in Tulum in March 2018, and have been teaching in the South Side & Shadyside studios ever since.
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 Business Development Manager at P3R, the organization responsible for the DICK'S Sporting Goods Pittsburgh Marathon, and Pittsburgh's other major running events.
