About Me

A native North Carolinian, I returned to the area in 2016 after living abroad for several years in Puerto Rico and throughout South America where I lived in an intentional community. I graduated from Hollins University in Roanoke, Virginia with a major in Dance. Over the years, I have worked teaching dance and yoga to children, adults and people with developmental disabilities. Upon returning stateside, I began working with elementary-aged children, loved it, and found myself drawn towards the Montessori method which captured my heart. I am thrilled to be able to delve into the philosophy of Maria Montessori and into the service of young people and their brightness. I enjoys yoga, exploring Ayurvedic cooking, going on a leisurely bike ride, being a tìa, and hiking with my dog, Cocù.
