I grew up in Oklahoma. I never really fit in. I was a dancer from age 3. My family is, to say the least, interesting. So I have a strong background of trying to figure out who I am and where I can fit in. I received my BS in Exercise Science because I wanted to help people become healthy and happy. I had far too many personal examples of the opposite in my childhood, my mother being the greatest teacher. She has helped me tremendously in learning why people make the choices they make that lead to dis-ease, obesity, and even mental illness. She continues to teach me and make me a better teacher and person.
Peace in the City began 5 years ago as a way to bring affordable yoga and personal training to individuals and businesses. What happened was that transformations were occurring in the participants, but often they did not have the tools to translate change into all areas of their lives. In the past year, PITC has been going through a reinvention to combine almost two decades of fitness leadership experience, almost a decade of yoga teaching, lessons learned through my Master's of Arts in Applied Community Change and Conservation, and 4 decades of life experiences. What you get is someone with a great sense of humor, who "gets it" and how incredibly difficult, yet often beautiful, this journey can be. It is an adventure. We are all here to learn and grow, sometimes, we need a little help getting closer to being the authentic, abundant, wildly fabulous souls we came here as.
