People who know me say I was born with boundless energy. Maybe that's why you will find me running on Lady Bird Lake Trail, paddle boarding on Lake Austin, or training my clients, many times all in the same day! Outside of the fitness world, my passion for music has me frequenting Moody-ACL, Stubb’s, and many local venues. A Longhorn at heart, you can also find me cheering on the Horns on Saturdays in the fall. Hook ‘Em!! I love breakfast tacos, a good steak, and a cold Dos Equis as a reward for some great workouts!

Brand new to Austin, I am originally from Massachusetts, where my love for the water and all things nautical began. 

I grew up dancing and began teaching barre and fitness after college, received my yoga teacher training from YogaWorks and spent years leading SUP classes all over Southern California.  Most days, I can be found teaching anything that makes you sweat...from dance and yoga to SUP fitness. My goal each day is to empower friends and students to live their strongest, healthiest, and happiest lives, one sweaty session at a time! 

I believe there's nothing that a good laugh, some time on the water, and Stevie Wonder can't fix.

I am a born and raised Austinite! I have been a yoga instructor since 2015 as well as an avid surfer and paddleboarder. I quickly fell in love with SUP Yoga and earned my certification in November 2016 at SUP Yoga Tulum. Communication and connection through the mind, body and soul is my platform for living a happy and healthy life!
