I’m a registered yoga teacher and a certified health & wellness coach. Prior to entering the wellness industry, I had a career in regulatory banking after receiving my undergraduate degree in finance. Then, I embarked on a 20 year career in education. I worked at several high performing high schools in the suburban Chicago area as a teacher, a coach, a club sponsor, a mentor to students and teachers, and a department chair. The final 5 years of my career in education were spent as a school administrator. I oversaw a staff of over 400, a student body of 2800, had high level responsibilities, and was accountable to the stakeholders in the school and in the community. After “climbing the ladder” in my career to reach a top level position, I left or as I like to say, “I took early retirement.” The job of a school administrator did not suit my personality. So, after a long battle with my own health and much soul searching and personal reflection, I left a six-figure salary and job security to create a new career in wellness.

I began working with a health & wellness coach to help me get to the root of why I could not consistently incorporate healthy habits into my life. I had mild success on my own over the years with losing weight and managing my stress. Inevitably, however, I always gained my weight back and I never really understood how all the pieces of my wellbeing fit together. Once I started working with a trained professional in the wellness industry, I finally made the lasting lifestyle changes that have led me to live a life where I now thrive instead of survive.
