Born and raised in the midwest of the US, I’m proud to have touched lives around the world through philanthropy, adventure and yoga.
My passions were so wildly varied that no existing job seemed inclusive of all I had to offer: design, yoga, creativity, spirituality, writing, music, entrepreneurship, fitness, philanthropy…
All over the place.
From working in boutique design firms, to being the first female designer in a corporate fashion company... To opening a creative marketing agency that staffed everything from philanthropic events to nation-wide promotions to Pre-ESPYs parties at the Playboy Mansion... To volunteering in developing countries around the world, to founding a yoga school and creating a globally recognized 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training course...
I continued to prove to myself that life does not have to be traditional.
Some of the questions I’m most often asked are:
“How are your teeth so white?”
“Where do you get your yoga pants?”
“What launched your journey?”
Oil pulling is an Ayurvedic remedy thought to detox the body, with a side effect of whitening the teeth.
My collection of pants is a curation of big brands to homemade gifts.

Beyond the sparkle and shine…
For as long as I can remember, I’ve had an insatiable hunger for knowledge and adventure, and a burning desire to serve.
I wanted to walk in others’ shoes – to feel their sorrows, to empathize with the injustices they suffer, and to understand what makes them happy.
I felt that my life had been so charmed – with a supportive family, enough food, a good education – that I wanted to share it.
“What makes me unique?"
From an early age, I felt something simmering just beneath the surface. I didn’t know what it was, but I wanted it...
The connection I saw in the yogi with her eyes half open and lips turned up on the mat next to me in the first class I took... The union I felt at the ashram I frequented whilst living in Southern California... The expansive love and explosive heartbreak I held with the death of young a friend... The inexplicable bliss I experienced through breath work and yogic practices... The overwhelming joy I received in the most extraordinary moments... The depths and heights from which I returned after thinking there was no return – to the same place, a different person.
So I chose to seek it in beautiful, difficult, challenging places and situations – serving food to hungry, volunteering at homeless shelters, orphanages, prisons, hospitals, schools, places that acknowledge suffering, hardship and discrimination, and offer care to those in need. In giving I received.
Those gifts, that education, the adventure, the beauty, the pain, the joy, the total immersion into life – is infused into all I do now, my practice and teaching, creating and holding inclusive space to the best of my ability, the way I live.
Whilst on one of my self-imposed missions, alone, I met Rich. And voila – I was part of a team, a duo, a union that more than doubled my light, my effectiveness, my own inspiration and soul expansion. I was whole and we created The Conscious Life Collective.
Which brings me to you!
As one of the Co-founders of The Conscious Life Collective, I'm here to serve.
We believe in being authentic, vulnerable, and living in love. That includes showing and sharing your unique gifts, personality, sense of humor and heart.
We believe that we can all be happy, and that even the exquisite pain of life can lead to happiness. We believe that we can change our lives, and therefore the world.
This philosophy, combined with balancing upon a fine line between courage and naivety, and a lot of hard work and trust, have lead to our successes, realizations, bliss, and continued lighting of our steps upon this path – and our experiences will help illuminate the way to yours.
