I am a retired educator who taught elementary education and special education preK-high school, worked as a building level administrator, and ultimately became a teacher educator. As a consultant trainer for ETS, I trained teachers and administrators in 43 of the 50 states. Being married to a career Navy man allowed me the experience of living and traveling many places across the and Europe and provided me with a tremendous awareness and appreciation for diversity and multiculturalism. I have been a Yorktown, VA resident for the past 30+ years.
I discovered the benefits of Yoga several years ago as I was searching for relief from chronic back pain. I quickly found that yoga is much more than contorting the body into poses – it is a way of life blending mind, body, and spirit. I completed her 200-hour training at ZYA in Newport News and have completed the YogaWarriorsInternational™ training, hoping to take my Yoga practice to a higher level working with wounded warriors and caretakers. I work to adapt classes to meet the needs of my students, focusing on helping students find their center and improve their strength, flexibility, and balance.
