Owner Of GreenTree Ayurveda
Integrative Holistic Health Coach
Ayurvedic Practitioner, Pilates & Yoga Instructor
I have long been passionate about the importance of balancing the body, mind, and heart as well as helping others, even before I knew “what I wanted to do with my life!” Even as a young child, I enjoyed supporting my family and friends. In many ways, I’ve worn the “coach hat” most of my life.
My love of creativity and helping others drew me in at the beginning of my career in 2008 to become a licensed Cosmetologist. As you can tell, I still have a huge love of expressing authenticity and creativity through hair!
For the next five years, I not only styled
In 2014, my mother passed away and It was through my mother’s death that my journey led me towards a definitive role as a teacher, guide, and integrative coach.
My mother grew up challenged by Fibromyalgia, Depression, and an accumulation of what eventually caused her to take her life, Stress. My mother, although beautifully resilient in so many ways, did not have the Self-Compassion, Self-care system, and Self-esteem to build a strong foundation of health to pursue her goals and dreams. Since her passing, I am thirsty to help parents truly connect to themselves and live richer, energetic, and fuller lives.
I also have another passion, dance, and for the last 30 years, I have creatively expressed myself through movement. I was drawn to become a certified Pilates instructor in 2015. I wanted to teach and empower change from the inside out. However, I quickly realized I had to go even deeper and developed an appreciation and belief that the body and mind work together and can not be separated.
And as a lifelong learner, in 2017 I also became a certified Yoga Alliance Instructor. This has furthered my own practice as well as allowed me to expand the tools I use for my clients.
In August of 2017, I moved my home base from San Diego to Portland, Oregon. GreenTree Ayurveda has roots in San Diego and now I am so happy to dig deep here in Portland as well.
I currently reside on the board of the Non-Profit Organization: Oregon Yoga and Ayurveda Association. I offer both in person and online programs.
