A native South Carolinian, I grew up in Columbia, but now call Charleston home!  This amazingly beautiful city has so much to offer!

What is your favorite workout?

Pure Barre, power vinyasa yoga, and walking my two dogs!

What is your go-to breakfast?

Avocado toast topped with a fried egg, paprika, and olive oil–and a big cup of black coffee.

What can you not live without?

A good night’s sleep, coffee, and daily movement.

What’s your day job?

After a couple stints in the public sector as a grants administrator and then in the corporate sector heading up the training division at the nation’s largest barre franchise, I have settled in as the project & partnership manager at a digital media and marketing agency.  I work with the coolest people and love learning all about websites each day!

What makes you qualified to share wellness advice?

After college, I realized helping others is my calling and that the health and wellness realm is my true passion.  I love learning about all things fitness and health related and am continuously studying to grow my knowledge base in this industry.

I am a certified yoga teacher, Pilates instructor, and Pure Barre teacher and teach regularly in the Charleston community.  I completed my 200 hour yoga teacher training program through Charleston Power Yoga in Charleston, SC.  My Pilates training (reformed and tower) was completed through Exhale Pilates in Charleston, SC.  I earned my Pure Barre teacher certifications through Pure Barre Corporate’s teaching training programs in Denver, CO and Spartanburg, SC.

Additionally, I am a certified holistic health coach and received my training at the Institute for Integrative Nutrition in New York, NY.

Where did you earn your undergraduate and graduate degrees?

I received my undergraduate degree in business administration from Washington and Lee University in Lexington, VA, and both a Masters of Public Administration and a graduate certificate in arts management from The Graduate School of the College of Charleston in Charleston, SC.
