About Me: I'm a yoga and meditation instructor, passionate about living - and helping others live - with more space, freedom and ease. I love adventure, travel, collaboration, big thinking and even bigger dreaming. I am a Canadian Native and early in my career I moved to NYC to pursue my big city dreams and work with the United Nations. Jaunts abroad led me to live in London and soon after, New Zealand. After returning to New York my yoga practice deepened and I became an instructor, leading group classes, working privately with clients and leading luxury wellness retreats. While NYC will always have my heart, I have recently relocated to Seattle, where immersing myself in the West Coast vibe has given new meaning to living with more space, freedom and ease :)

Why do you want to be a part of heymama?: I think that community is SO important. It inspires me, it lifts me up, it keeps me connected, motivated and happy. Some of the most amazing women have come into my life as a result of communities like this one, and I'm constantly searching for new, inspiring ways to connect. It took me a long time to decide to be a mama. There was always a piece of me that was worried I'd lose myself, that I would no longer be able to fulfill my own dreams. Since I have been pregnant, I've realized how many amazing, badass mamas there are out there, doing incredible things, living their dreams, and doing it beautifully while raising their little ones at the same time. I know that being a parent will be hard. But I also believe it will be rewarding and fun, and having other women to draw inspiration from will, I'm sure, help me tremendously through both the highs and lows. And I hope that I'll also be able to support other mamas along the way. I'm new to Seattle without much of a network here, which makes an online community even more important.
What are your career goals?: I adore teaching yoga, meditation and retreats, and I plan to continue and grow that aspect of my business on the west coast. I also have some big plans for a company that would allow me to combine my experience with gender equality, empowerment and international development (from my UN days) with the the healing practices of yoga and meditation.
