I am grateful for a career as a teacher in public education wherein I worked with children and adults of all ages. My career has been rich with interesting experiences and people. But the best is yet to come!

Throughout my life, I have been deeply involved in yoga, meditation, and creative dance. I am a certified Kripalu Yoga Instructor and Let Your Yoga Dance teacher. I was a professional dancer and teacher at the Tucson Creative Dance Center. I co-founded the Moving Center a co-operative dance studio in Tucson, AZ. I have had the great pleasure of offering yoga, yoga-dance, drumming and creative movement classes to children and adults for many years.

Two years ago I became deeply inspired by the mission of Teen Cancer America. The teen and early adult years are an extremely important and profound time in life. This population has been greatly underserved. I am committed to helping to change this paradigm and to support those organizations such as Teen Cancer America who are making a difference in the lives of teens struggling with cancer and mental illness.

My dream is to grow Mountain Rhythms’ programs that provide experiences in Creative Movement, yoga, drumming, and live music to all. I hope to promote wellness by bringing the community together through activities that are joyful, inspiring, and health-enhancing. I currently lead a creative movement and drumming classes at Shaw Cancer Center in Edwards, CO and Roundup River Ranch (serving children with life-threatening illnesses) in Gypsum, CO.

With love,
