How did a punk rock girl from Kansas go from playing in metal bands and partying with rockstars to getting scholarships from NASA and sitting at the feet of saints? From scared to hang out with people due to extreme anxiety to a leader and public speaker on Ayurveda, spirituality, and sexuality? One crazy step at at a time!
As a teenager and into my twenties I suffered from all kinds of problems, from debilitating anxiety to chronic back pain that left me unable to walk for weeks at a time for over 15 years of my life. This is when my relentless investigation into all things health began. Western medicine failed me and it wasn’t until I ended up in an Āyurvedic hospital while traveling in India that I found the answers I had so long been searching for. I left my life and job as an environmental scientist in Seattle behind and moved to New Mexico to study this art with Dr. Vasant Lad.
Classical Indian culture has been a HUGE part of my life, from over a decade of study in Āyurveda, initiation into 2 spiritual lineages from the Himalayas, 5 years training Odissi dance, and most recently studying Astrology in the lineage of Sanjay Rath. I LOVE weaving these traditions with my skills as a trauma informed master coach and student of tantra to take my clients to the next level intelligently, holistically, and with a deep reverence for the Divine- all while being TOTALLY myself in this western tattooed body I have chosen.
I can only take my clients as far as I am willing to go- which is why I will never stop learning and improving myself.
