A lifelong educator and interdisciplinary artist, I have worked as a Somatic Movement Educator with groups and individuals in a wide variety of settings including yoga and dance studios, colleges, women’s shelters, schools, camps, and HIV/AIDS wellness organizations.
I began my somatic studies nearly a decade ago at Oberlin College, where I studied interdisciplinary arts with an intensive focus on improvisational dance/movement, and installation art. After college I spent a year teaching somatic and creative arts in New Orleans, where I also studied Usui Reiki at the Reiki Center of New Orleans.
Since returning to practice in the Philadelphia area, I have become an insured Body-Mind practitioner of IDEA Fitness and Wellness and earned a Masters with Distinction in Dance and Somatic Well-being through the University of Central Lancashire. Currently I continue my training through personal somatic research and mentorship, as well as workshops in dance improvisation and Continuum Movement.
