A life long resident of McMinn County, a mother of two amazing adult sons!
My journey began with a search, searching for myself and my own understanding of why .....
Why am I unhappy! Why am I sick!
I needed more than waking, working, only to repeat it day after day.
I needed more, I began taking private yoga classes with Christy, which lead to attending my first yoga retreat where my world changed and I wanted to learn more! I immediately signed up for yoga teacher training, not sure I would ever teach I really wanted it for my personal growth. I had no idea it would change my life, my path and my heart leading me back to ME!
One year later...
I am now a RYT200 and a Reiki Healer and currently in massage school!

My family and I are from the Niota/Sweetwater TN area. I have two beautiful adult children and three amazing grand babies who are always around to help out with the business.
My journey in Natural Health started when I was a young adult. My hobby was to find a way to heal, ME; body, mind & spirit. (I did A LOT of self-study on nutrition, exercise, yoga, meditation, Native American traditions and ceremonies). After spending decades in a professional career I felt incomplete and always searching for something more, different . . . .
In 2013 I left my employment and began this journey of self-healing and reconnecting with my
true authentic self.
Today, I specialize in Private Yoga Sessions, Private Life Coaching, Yoga Retreats, Group or Corporate Yoga, Wellness Workshops, Reiki Training & Yoga Teacher Trainings.
I have over 10 years experience in the study of yoga and a RYT500 /
E-RYT200 (Experienced Registered Yoga Teacher) through White Crow Yoga of Nashville and Sacred Awakening/Asmi Yoga of Oregon. I received my first certification in yoga training through Cheryl Murman, of Chattanooga Yoga Center.
I also studied massage therapy through the Massage Institute of Cleveland; so I could bring the healing effects of both yoga and massage to my community. Where I was first introduced to Reiki and continued my training to become A Reiki Master & Teacher my linage is through Usui Ryoho Reiki.
Some of my recent passions & studies; Birthing Doula, through Earth Wisdom Birth Doula, training under Lori Love. And Bodywork for Anxiety & Depression through Cultivating Inner Stillness
I teach about the 8 limbs of yoga, different pranayama techniques, and lead meditation in all of my classes.
I love sharing yoga with beginners who are ready to better their lifestyle. When I started practicing yoga I faced many challenges, I thought, this can’t be for me
— I am too inflexible
But here’s what I found: you don’t adjust your body to fit yoga, you adjust your yoga to fit your body. It’s your yoga, your body, your way. If you’re ready to start your own journey, give me a call today. 💫
Love & Light

Born in southern California, raised in northwest Illinois, and landed here in East TN in 2018 I am constantly craving the change of scenery.
A free spirit that cannot be contained to one area for too long and a bit of a self proclaimed hippy who loves to live outside of the conventional box. I think that this pull for something a bit different and more than myself is what brought me to yoga.
In the beginning it was simply physical.
As a mom of two children who at the time were just babies I needed something that I could do from home. As a former gymnast I missed my tight tummy and extreme flexibility. I began playing yoga videos at home and quickly fell head over heals in love. Almost immediately it became my new obsession. I realized that none of the physical aspects that originally drew me to the practice mattered. Instead of aiming for the perfect body I was learning to love mine with all of it's little imperfections. I was becoming more aware of who I was and started working towards being my most authentic self.
For the longest time I was a bit scared to share my practice with others. I was afraid of judgement for being and doing something different. Finally, in 2014 I took the plunge and began heavily studying the practice through a newly opened yoga studio nearby. I learned so much through my training and realized I could not keep it to myself any longer. So, in 2016 I left my full time job with all of it's perks and began teaching small yoga classes and returned to my passion for gymnastics as a coach. Through coaching and leading yoga classes I found my true calling. I was happier than I had ever been and loved what I was doing.
In 2018 my husband and I along with our children and fur babies made a leap of faith. We sold our home, loaded up a moving truck, and moved south to TN. I immersed myself within the yoga community and Christy and I were brought together. Instantly we hit it off and I knew we would be lifelong friends. When she opened Creekside and asked me to join her crew I was elated. This wanderer finally feels at home <3 I cannot wait to share myself and my style with all of you!
When you recover or discover
something that nourishes
your soul and brings you joy,
care enough about yourself
to make room for it in your life!
