I am a Roanoke native. I graduated from Northside High School in 2002. After high school, I went on to Virginia Western Community College and achieved my Associates Degree in Mental Health. I have a Bachelor's Degree in Social Work from Radford and my Masters Degree is in Psychology which was obtained via Capella University. During that time, I spent most of my time as an In Home Clinician where I worked with children at risk of being removed from their home (or already removed). My speciality throughout that time became inter-generational trauma.
I later pursued my 200 Hour Hatha Yoga Certification from Anna Pittman in Blacksburg, VA while also attending Daniels Institute of Massage. During Massage school, I became very passionate about energy work. Thus, I pursued my Usui Reiki training from Denise Legg with Reconnecting Mind, Body, Spirit of Roanoke, VA.
After needing a change in weather and diversity, I chose to move to Orlando, FL where I resided for 5 years. I am so grateful for the experiences I had while living in Florida personally and professionally. I moved back to Virginia in 2018 and have never appreciated my hometown more than I do now.
October 18, 2017 marks the most important day of my life as I gave birth to my beautiful baby twin girls, Luna and Estrella. I've always had a hunger to evolve and transform myself but having these girls have made me want to be the best version of myself I have ever thought possible. I am grateful everyday for how much they have and are continuing to teach me as a mother and a woman.
