One. What is The Works to you?

The Works is where I find joy in my body. It reminds me to be thankful for the ability to move and breathe in that moment, despite any body bullshit I am dealing with. There is magic in a group of people getting together to move and work and sweat together.

Two. What's playing in your headphones?

Lizzo, Florence, Mumford, Shovels and Rope, Avett Brothers—  anything that makes me wanna shake my ass or sing at the top of my lungs with a little bit of folk twang.

Three. When I'm not sweating I'm...

Always trying to equal out that left and right brain! I work full-time as a Nurse Practitioner in the CVICU. In my free time, I make my creative footprint as a visual artist (collage, watercolor, acrylics). I love learning new things and am constantly in pursuit of new passions.
I also have a boyfriend and two step kids that I am completely obsessed with.
And I never met a tequila drink I didn’t like….

Four. Come to me for...

Big love, big energy, vulnerability and body positivity. I love guiding and understanding the intention behind the movement. I hope everyone in my class leaves feeling joyful and SO loved.
