Outside of the office, I dedicate my time to teaching yoga, through classes, and by assisting a yoga teacher training program.

Who is your favorite EverybodyFights Trainer, and why?
While I haven’t taken everyone’s class, Chris DaVeiga is my ‘go to’ when I want to not only work hard, but have fun. His energy and enthusiasm is truly inspiring. He motivates me to push beyond my limits. When I’m looking to center myself, Catie Macken is like the calm within the storm. Her knowledge of yoga and anatomy leads to thoughtful sequences that help deepen my understanding of the human body, and cultivate my own practice.
How do you Fight It Forward?
I fight it forward by being a shoulder to lean on; I listen to truly hear, and communicate openly and honestly. Whether I’ve known you for years, or we’ve just met, I want to learn your story and if you’d like, help you along your journey.
