Through her own meditation practice, joining the Flagstaff Insight Meditation community and attending numerous retreats she experienced a personal transformation which inspired a strong desire to teach and share this practice with others. In 2016 she earned a Certification in Mindfulness Facilitation through UCLA and is now an Internationally Certified Mindfulness Teacher. She also works in private practice as a Counselor, specializing in Mindfulness-based Cognitive Therapy and offers Introduction to Mindfulness classes throughout the Flagstaff community.

The adversity and struggle of our lives are actually here as a teacher. By opening our eyes to a new way of seeing the same thing, we allow ourselves to transform. Practical tools for working with the challenges of life.
Celebrating the gifts of this practice, that it affords us the opportunity to experience a sense of home, of sanctuary, of comfort and well being in our hearts, that we can offer this to ourselves and to one another, and that our sangha encompasses the entire world.
The changing of the seasons offers an opportunity for reflection and letting go. An exploration of how we can consciously choose to let go of what no longer serves us to make space for our intentions moving forward.
