I am a woman of diverse interestS, education, Expertise, and life experience.
My formal academic education culminated in dual B.A.s in Spanish Language and in Latin American & Iberian Studies from Southern Methodist University and continued immediately thereafter in an epicurean direction, with extensive coursework in cheese / pairing through Molto Formaggio and Scardello Artisan Cheese, and further wine + spirits certification through the Guild of Master Sommeliers.
In recent years, I have become a certified NLP Practitioner and certified Hypnotherapist, as well as completing training in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Flotation Therapy, and intensive study in Integrative Wellness + Life Coaching.
Through time spent in both the DFW area and Los Angeles, I have had the opportunity to work on multiple levels with a wide variety of people and companies - from major brands like Aston Martin and Equinox Fitness, to disruptive Silicon Beach startups, like CapLinked and Winc, Unplug Meditation, We Journey, and The MyIntent Project.
In 2017, I transitioned to offering public classes and intuitive readings full time through The DEN Meditation, Mystic Journey Yoga + Meditation, Soul Hum Studios, and KnockoutLA , as well as facilitating flotation therapy at Pause Float Studio in Marina del Rey, CA.
In 2018, I moved my practice back to my hometown of Dallas, TX, and am currently offering classes / workshops through Sync Yoga & Wellbeing and focusing on founding my own emergent studio, the refuge, with my brother Alex.
Despite the multitude of my endeavors, I have always had an internal focus on the study and practice of meditation, spiritual attainment, and personal design of my own life experience. I have been teaching meditation and offering wellness space business consulting for the last two years, after a request of instruction by my first student.
