My wonderful husband snapped the photo. What an intensely stressful journey! There were so many moments that made me question everything and whether I could finish my PhD. On a whim, I took my first 8-week Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) course to help manage the intense stress I was facing. I often wonder if I would have been able to complete my dissertation without the support of the 8-week MBSR class, my mindfulness practice, my husband, family, and several very close friends. It was the beginning of a journey that included yoga, mindfulness, and coach training.
Over the years, I have come to understand that this is at the core of everything that I do. I have extensive experience working in the Higher Ed environment with young professionals. I also have a deep interest to work with the under-served and under-priviliged.
Although I now live in Doylestown, PA I am still connected to my work in Ann Arbor, MI as a founding member of the Ann Arbor Center for Mindfulness and Mindful City - Ann Arbor and a rotating leading for Being In Tune in Ann Arbor, Michigan.
