I started this blog to document my journey through a Yoga Teacher Training program in 2012. Many friends and family members expressed interest in my experience… and since I love to write, I thought what better way to share and connect with others than through an online media such as this. To this day, my teacher training weekends rank as some of the finest and most enriching days of my life. After eight months of intense yoga study, I graduated and received my 200-hr YTT certification… and continued to write.
Shortly after obtaining my certification, I started sharing my love of yoga to whomever would show up with a mat, whether at a gym, in a park, or at a studio. For several years, I taught multiple classes a week. However, life takes turns and things change. And even though my teaching career has come to a momentary pause, yoga remains a huge part of my life.
Another passion of mine is writing. I graduated from college with a degree in English Literature and a strong desire to enhance the lives of others through researched and well-developed content. For a short while, I worked for an online publication geared toward the local military community. As a staff writer, I was responsible for developing content in women’s issues, such as health and fitness, financial security, gender issues in the workplace, and childcare.
After years of pushing aside that little voice in my head who persistently said, “Just do it,” I took note and reignited my freelance writing career. A lot of hard work and dedication takes place when writing, but crafting content feeds my soul and gets my feet out of bed in the morning. My areas of expertise remain in health & wellness, academics, and the medical field.
I have almost 2 decades of experience working and writing in the medical field as a technician and scribe in Ophthalmology. During those years, I worked side-by-side with some of the best surgeons in town, learning more than I ever imagined about the human body and its intricacies. Working in all areas of a medical office, from administration to testing and examinations to scheduling and counseling patients for surgery, I have become very aware of the patient experience and the need to keep processes human and understandable. Breaking down concepts and approaching people on their level is my desire and talent.
Lastly, and most importantly, I am Wife to the most wonderful man I’ve known. Though it took me years to find him, I am happy and ever so grateful for what he brings to my life. I am also Mom to 3 lovely girls, growing faster than I can believe and impressing me with their talents every day.
Thank you for joining me. I look forward to our conversations.
And remember, it’s not the fall that matters… what matters is how you get back up.
