In 2015 I moved to Pittsburgh to attend the University of Pittsburgh.  I always was interested in yoga but never knew how much of an impact it would have on my life until I fell in love with it after my first class I took that year.  I showed up thinking it was just some light stretching and breathing, wow was I wrong!  The music was great, the atmosphere was welcoming, and the people were amazing.  I never knew I could get a full body workout while also having fun and finding some inner peace all within one yoga class.  Practicing yoga made me stronger physically, mentally, and emotionally.  The strength I have found on my mat carries into my daily life, allowing me to handle stress and obstacles more gracefully.   

After attending classes at Amazing Yoga for 4 years, I completed my Level 1 Teacher Training September of 2018 in Pittsburgh.  I then completed my Level 2 Teacher Training in Maya Tulum, Mexico in February of 2019.  I currently teach at the Shadyside and South Side studios.

I graduated from the University of Pittsburgh with degrees in Psychology and Exercise Science.  Outside of the studio I am an Orangetheory Fitness Coach at the South Hills location.  If I'm not doing yoga you can find me biking around the city or at a local coffee shop.
