As a Maine native, I am enjoying living in California.  After serving eight years in the Army, I worked five years in Federal Law Enforcement.  My injuries made it necessary for me to retire.  I found yoga in 2014, took my first 200 hour teacher training through Rolf Gates; graduated June 2015.  February 2016 I completed VYP's Level 1.  I also have a second 200 hour teacher training from Just Be Yoga in Walnut Creek. 

I have personally seen and felt the difference yoga has made in my life and am passionate about bringing yoga to veterans.  I have endured 14 surgeries from injuries incurred in the line of duty, struggle with PTS, depression, and anxiety.  Yoga has given me the ability to be present minded, to make better decisions, and to start to regain my health.  I want to give back to my veteran family - who have helped me over the years.  I substitute teach yoga at Just Be yoga in Walnut Creek. I am currently in the process of getting a program started at the Martinez VA facility for veterans and their family.
