Co-Creator of River Family Wellness, Yoga Instructor, Future Massage Therapist
I grew up in the Callicoon area ~ and the energy of this river and land has welcomed me back home in the heart time and time again. It's been a true honor to create River Family Wellness with my husband Jason (with two young daughters in tow), and to share our vision and passions with our community. I thrive on helping to gently guide people back into their natural rhythms, so that healing and happiness are priority. I'm deeply inspired by all things bodywork, yoga, breathwork, sacred sound, ancestral, regenerative & holistic healing, earth medicine, womb wisdom and ceremony.
While teaching me how to move with grace and harmony through life, alternative medicine and mindfulness practices have allowed me to venture deep into the heart. Awe and wonderment of the natural and cosmic world came to me at a very young age, and expression through physical movement and mental discipline have allowed me to celebrate that connection with myself and the earth. I began experimenting with yoga, mindfulness and ceremony practices at a young age. Since then, I’ve begun a journey inside of myself and around the world to try to gain a better understanding of my higher purpose.
In the fall of 2024, I'll be able to hold space for our community in a new and exciting way. I'm currently studying Massage Therapy at Pacific College of Health and Science. Upon graduation and licensure, I'll be offering bodywork sessions.
This incredible practice continues to inspire me everyday, and I humbly bow with deep gratitude to all of the teachers in my life. They have given me the courage to honor my truth, to shine my light, and to share my love of wellness and healing with others.
