I oversee all things related to Health and Wellness in the organization to include nutrition, physical movement, mindfulness, meditation, sleep hygiene, and basic self-care. I support students with cultivating healthy habits and understanding why they are so important to their wellbeing. I am responsible for monitoring all of the food that is sent to our students in the field to ensure that it is nutritious. Our goal here at Blue Ridge is to promote self-care through awareness of what we put into our bodies. I am a yoga instructor with a 200-hour Yoga Alliance RYS certification. I bring yoga, mindfulness, exercise, and nutrition education to all of the groups. Every Wednesday you can find me teaching a yoga class to our young adult students in the Emerald Arrow program and I also teach a class to parents who attend our bi-monthly family workshop on Thursday afternoons.

The practice of Yoga, meditation, and mindfulness resonates with my soul. I am honored to teach and support these skills and practices to those interested in being a part of it. I feel that nurturing and building a strong relationship with Self, is of utmost importance to One’s mental, physical, and spiritual well-being.

I am a lover of nature and found my home, in Rabun County, Georgia, on the Chattooga River, as a river guide, many years ago. I feel more connected, here, in nature and on the river, than I ever have in my life. I’ve traveled to and lived in many places, all the while, knowing I would return, and this is my home. Rabun County is my playground. There is so much to do here. I love mountain biking, hiking, kayaking, backpacking, and camping. Stand Up Paddle boarding is my latest new hobby and I enjoy practicing SUP yoga as well. I love animals and have a little cat named River.
