I live in Los Angeles, but not the cool part. I live to spend time outside.
Growing up in Rhode Island, I spent a lot of time poking around in the woods and reading books. I went to college in the suburbs of Boston and moved to St. Louis to get a doctorate in neuroscience. I didn’t actually get one, but I did get a master's, then another dual master’s degree in social work and public health.
These days I spend most of my time listening to college radio while I research and write about health care policy (but not when I facilitate meetings and coach clients).
I started teaching yoga in 2014 and have found that it’s the perfect complement to my work with health care leaders and staff, plus I get to pick the soundtrack and weave in themes of interdependence, balance, and the value of working through your shit.
Sometimes I get into woo-woo stuff. (I know.) But I'm totally a scientist about it.
