What are three facts that you want us to know about yourself? 

  • I love Jesus
  • I love my job because I get to facilitate a practice that brings a lot of healing to a lot of bodies, minds and spirits. 
  • I LOVE being a mother and struggled with infertility for years—so it’s extra sweet now!

What inspires you to be a Women of Hope? 

I firmly believe that when God has a plan of healing and restoration for a community and disenfranchised people, AND allows us to be a part of that process…you don’t say, “no!” For the Silent is doing real, hard, AWESOME work. I’m honored to help. 

What ways are you involved in the community? 

  • Yoga community events and outreach 
  • Community Meditation (both leading/facilitating and training) 
  • Promise Academy marketing (graphic design) 
  • Small groups/bible study groups at The Vineyard
  • Heart of Tyler for Downtown Art Expansion (facilitator) 

What is a fun fact about you?  

I’m 36 with two babies I never thought I’d have. I am a two-time business owner even though I said “no” to business ownership. And I am a teacher despite swearing up and down I’d never teach! And I wouldn't change a thing :)
