, , 100 Montgomery St. 10th Floor

I am a hard working and determined individual who is eager to align my soul's purpose with my profession. Although I have been out of school for nine years, I feel that my life experiences paired with my formal and informal education make me a qualified candidate for the Mindfulness Based Transpersonal Counseling Program at Naropa University. I understand the personal work required to complete this program and I am both ready and eager to tackle this. I would like to live my life in service to those around me, near and far, and I feel that this program would help me to do so. From a young age, I began supporting and nurturing my friends and acquaintances through their struggles. I have suffered myself and witnessed many suffer around me and would like to be given the opportunity to grow so that I can offer much more to my friends, to my family, and to strangers alike.


I hold the ability to connect to others on a deep and meaningful level.

I work hard and see tasks and assignments to their completion.

I am comfortable leading people through movements and breathwork that will allow them to access deeper parts of themselves.

I am not afraid to go to the unknown. I have often gone out of my comfort zone and traveled to places with few luxuries in order to learn something about myself and the world around me.

I am driven and devoted to living a meaningful life.

Awakened Life School of Yoga Bali, Indonesia, Expected in 11/2015 RYT200 : Yoga Teacher Training - GPA :

Here, I was able to dig up past traumas in a safe environment and share them with others for one of the first times. I established a deeper connection with meditation than I previously had, and challenged myself physically, mentally, and emotionally. One of the hardest parts of returning from this intensive YTT was having to reassimillate to my life with the changes that had transpired within. I found that once I returned home, I was still slowly transforming. It was as if seeds had been planted, and through my self nurturing, they would grow and I would continue to learn. I still feel some of those seeds blossoming today.

Kairos Retreat Los Altos, CA, Expected in 04/2005 : Self And Spiritual Exploration - GPA :

This retreat was my first organized encounter with self and spiritual exploration. We were instructed to make a timeline of our lives and dive deep into any points that stuck out to us. We were then able to share and discuss these thoughts feelings and emotions. We had silent mornings and a lot of time outside to connect ourselves with a higher power. I found this retreat to be the gateway into my quest for something deeper in my life. I was able to view my experiences and related thoughts and emotions as a part of a bigger picture. I was given perspective and an opportunity for compassion as others shared their life stories so far. We worked through anger, grief, guilt, shame, and many other emotions that we as teenagers had brewing within.

Howley Bread Group - Manager
Harrisonburg, VA, 05/2019 - Current

I help the owner with the general operations of the studio. This is a small local business that has established a wonderful name throughout the community. I manage accounts, clean the studio, help plan events, manage customer relations, train new employees, manage employee issues, ensure that classes are covered when needed, handle the cash, and perform any other tasks that the owner may need. She currently lives an hour away so if something goes wrong, I am there to handle the situation. I have found that this extended level of responsibility at the yoga studio has given me a greater sense of pride in my work. I find that cleaning and organizing our space creates an environment that is conducive to people's sense of safety and comfort when visiting. I truly feel that this allows people to put their walls down and get a greater benefit out of their practice.

Cheddar's - Bartender
Saint Joseph, MO, 07/2016 - Current

I make drinks for customers at a very busy restaurant in my area. This job has given me a way to live comfortably in Tahoe while dedicating time to my passion that is teaching and practicing yoga. It has allowed me to travel each year for extended periods of time and nurture my soul and body in that way. The job itself has been a learning experience in dealing with all kinds of people from many walks of life. It can be challenging, in the fact that people are not always kind or patient, but I have found this to be a lesson for me to not take things so personally. I have learned to not react, and to process before responding when someone says or does something that shocks me. Working as a bartender has refined my skills in staying organized while completing tasks, moving efficiently, keeping calm in hectic situations, and being kind to others regardless of how they treat me. I am grateful to have a well-paying job, but I am constantly feeling the urge to align my profession with my passions.

Seattle Children's Hospital - Yoga Instructor
Everett, WA, 04/2016 - Current

I use creativity paired with my knowledge of anatomy, asana, and pranayama to design sequences for the community in which I live. I design these sequences with a different theme in mind each time. These themes generally stem from yogic teachings, such as the Yamas and Niyamas. Some examples would be, non-violence towards yourself and others, using one's energy wisely, truthfulness to yourself and others, self-study, contentment and unconditional gratitude, as well as offering surrender to a power higher than you. I have used this role as a yoga instructor to guide people through both movements and meditations in order to help them through sober recovery, grief, anxiety, depression, as well as physical ailments and injuries. I feel that this practice brings in people of all backgrounds, shapes, and sizes and I find an exciting challenge in creating a space that allows each person to get what they need. As a teacher, I have to allow myself to be open and adaptable since I can never know who is going to walk through the door. I have to be sensitive to the moods, needs, and physical capabilities of my students when teaching a class. This forces me to be unattached to the plan at times, which I have found to be a meaningful personal lesson.

Trufusion - Yoga Instructor
Walnut Creek, CA, 01/2016 - 08/2017

This was my first job teaching yoga. I was the instructor at a climbing gym. I learned so much about myself and about people through this job, despite having reservations with working at a gym. I had preconceived notions about who I would be teaching and those were almost instantly shattered. Teaching yoga at High Altitude was an amazing experience because majority of the students began attending for physical reasons: either they wanted a workout, or they wanted a recovery from a workout. However, they were open and allowed themselves to receive the mental and emotional gifts of yoga and meditation that I offered them. I had body builders and triathletes who would continuously drag friends to classes to show them the beyond physical effects of these practices. I had whole families practicing together, people in their 70s and even 80s, people who were severely overweight looking to get healthy, and many high school students who were learning to become comfortable in their changing bodies and minds. My classes were always full, often waitlisted, and I was blown away by the dedication of these clients, who, many of them, rarely missed a class. Both my teaching and my practice grew immensely through this job and I was extremely sad when I chose to leave. Unfortunately, I and many of the other fitness instructors at the gym, did not feel respected by the owners. It was a very difficult choice to leave this job, but I knew I had to do it for myself.
