Thank you for visiting my page!

I am a Certified Ayurvedic Practitioner, E-RYT, writer, teacher, and speaker in Minneapolis. I am currently pitching my memoir, Skin by Skin: A Soulful Affair.

I like to dig deep and write about how politics, parenting, marriage, current events, and more are as much “spiritual centers” that can cultivate greater mindfulness and consciousness as anywhere that goes by this name. In a world divided, I seek unity, compassion, and connection.

In my memoir, in my work, and in my personal life, I experiment with how we can wrap ourselves in the skins of society–roles, relationships, identities–while reaching from the soul. This is what I call living soul-side out.

I Write:


-with curiosity, compassion and creativity.

-where the real world intersects the spiritual world.

-to create dialogue and discussion.

– to challenge and inspire.

-to share laughter at our humanness.

-to be of benefit in this world.

You can join me in Minneapolis for an upcoming event, or read my latest work.

Yin and Yang energies do not just live on acupuncture charts. They are influencing, shaping, and can even be destructive forces in the world and in our minds. As with many things, balance is key.
