I grew up in Nova Scotia and moved to Fort St. John, BC, for work as a GIS Specialist in July of 2013, where I met my husband. I started attending public yoga classes there in 2014. I can remember my first class in perfect detail, the teacher, the poses, even where I placed my mat in the room.

I never pictured myself as a yoga teacher, as I thought I would never be able to eloquently guide a room of students through a class. That all changed when the manager of the studio I took classes at, approached me and convinced me to attend the next Vinyasa 200h Yoga Teacher Training with Randelle Lusk in the fall of 2015. It was during teacher training that I realized I was kind of good at teaching yoga and that I enjoyed it.

I have continued to teach yoga since I graduated teacher training in February 2016 and was fortunate enough to be a teacher at two amazing studios in Fort St. John. My teaching style has evolved since then but will always be influenced by my original mentors. I have continued to educate myself with regards to yoga and other forms of movement and decided to sign up for my 300h YTT training with Kathryn Bruni-Young and Carly Stong through Mindful Strength that I will graduate from in March 2022. I chose this training because of its emphasis on strength science and inclusion. These subjects will help me achieve my ultimate goal of helping people realize their full potential on and off their mats.

Outside of the classroom I spend a lot of my time chasing after my two toddlers and my two large dogs, all while making sure they don’t crush the pet rabbit. I supplement my yoga practice with long distance running, strength training and hiking.

In the summer of 2021 my husband and I packed up our kids and pets and made the move to Revelstoke. I am so excited to join a new yoga community and to share my passion of movement with my peers and students in this wonderful town.
