I grew up in Nova Scotia and moved to Fort St. John for work as a GIS Specialist, with Vector Geomatics Land Surveying Ltd. in July of 2013. I first started doing yoga a couple times a week at home because I was too shy to go to the studio, until one day my roommate invited me to join her in a public yoga class at Blacksmith Yoga Community. I can remember my first class in perfect detail, the teacher, the poses, even where I placed my mat in the room. Ever since that day in May of 2014 I made a commitment to attend class a couple times a week. It wasn’t until I joined my first 30 day challenge with Blacksmith that I started attending class as often as I could.

I never pictured myself as a yoga teacher, as I thought I would never be able to eloquently guide a room of students through a class. This changed when the manager of the studio approached me and convinced me to attend the next Vinyasa 200h Yoga Teacher Training with Randelle Lusk. It was during teacher training that I realized teaching yoga was my true passion. I have been teaching at the studio for just over a year now and my thirst to grow as a teacher becomes greater each day. My joy comes from seeing the people who attend my classes grow, not only physically but mentally.

Outside of the classroom I spend my time hanging out with my husband, two dogs and friends……… and learning as much as I can about yoga.
