I have been passionate about health & wellness almost my whole life. I was a competative gymnast and earned a scholarship to Sacramento State. While competing for Sac State, I had a career ending knee injury. I finished my degree in Kinesiology and earned my Physical Education teaching credentinal. During that time I began to practice yoga & mindfulness. I truly believe my commitment to staying physically and mentally healthy allowed me to positively overcome life's obstaces.
I continue to enjoy staying healthy with my family by hiking, biking, running, swimming, & paddleboarding. I have two daughters in elementary school, three cats, and five chickens.
I love teaching high school students and especially at Vista!
