In my free time you can find me playing with my two kids, loving on my wife, and squeezing the family dog, Gus. I am addicted to doing the daily crossword, knitting, and I love to bake.
Why I Practice
I am a Critical Care trauma nurse in the burn ICU at Washington Hospital Center with the hopes of one day continuing on to become a Nurse Practitioner or a Nurse Anesthetist. With medicine as a passion, I thrive in the high-paced and high-intensity arena of the ICU. While not a full-time teacher, I enjoy both teaching yoga and practicing yoga as a means to provide a work/life balance.
Why I Teach
I use teaching and practicing as a way to unwind, to indulge my body and mind, and to help people use yoga as a primary means of bettering their health. I have been practicing yoga since 2010, and went to the Bikram Teacher Training in 2013 in Los Angeles. My favorite posture is camel pose, and my most challenging posture is standing separate leg forehead to knee. I look forward to furthering my yogi knowledge by learning how to teach vinyasa yoga.
