I am a woman of diverse interest, 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 focusing on founding my own emergent studio, the refuge meditation, 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.
