With over 20 combined years of personal practice, also including yoga & Reiki, I am a meditation professional with a focus in early childhood development. I completed the training in mindfulness facilitation through UCLA's Mindfulness Awareness Research Center, plus an additional year of Intensive Practice Program, also at UCLA. I am a certified Mindfulness teacher with the International Mindfulness Teachers Association. In order to keep my credential in good standing, I attend a yearly silent retreat.
After obtaining a degree in Early Childhood Development from Loyola Marymount University I spent 6 years volunteering in the Kindergarten and Pre-K special needs programs at Hancock Park Elementary School, then piloted a Mindfulness curriculum in 2015. With a passion for how meditation can positively impact a child’s overall educational experience, I have chosen to specialize my practice in this space.
I have additional training through Mindful Schools and have been implementing a mindfulness curriculum teaching Pre-K through high school classes at Lycée Français de Los Angeles since 2017. I also teach privately with small groups, one-on-one, and hopefully again in person some day at the Powell Library at UCLA.
*Due to COVID-19 all classes currently taught online*
I am a wife and mother of two. I live and practice in Los Angeles.
